Our Majari Collection of Tibetan rugs is hand woven with Himalayan wool. The undyed yarns arrive from the Himalayas in various shades of white with a slightly uneven appearance. They are then dyed in a copper pot over a log fire. This primitive method contributes to a variation in color accuracy and consistency. The yarn is then hand spun using techniques dating back thousands of years.
These processes contribute to a very desirable property called “abrush”- faint straia across the rug. This straia is extremely handsome in its randomness and displays evidence of the artisan’s hand.
