Nomadic Life

£3,200.00


Through the lens, we often can see the snowy plateau. Have you ever wondered, how do kids living on the plateau view their lives themselves? We integrated the paintings of kindergarten children into the traditional Tibetan rug design. Only the most experienced weavers can achieve perfectly the vivid images of a child’s imagination. Master craftsmen can replicate the lively hand painting style, making these pocket sketches of life colourful and authentic.

From villages to pastures, from forests to temples, every rug from our “Tibet Through a Child’s Eye” collection is a miniature panorama composed of unique episodes in highland life. The quality and level of detail will surprise you. This one of a kind collection consists of 10 designs. Each of which is woven using finest wool sourced from sheep living in Tibetan plateaus above 4,000 metres of altitude.

Description

In Tibet, people who live on pastures and those who live on farms lead very different lifestyles. In the pasture, a father teaches his daughter to herd animals. As the day passes by and the sun is ready to set, they take out the rope to round up their animals and prepare to go back home. It’s another peaceful day on the prairie.

Cerulean sky, endless green pastures, tame yaks and sheep, loyal Tibetan mastiffs and horses, and luxurious yak hair tents. Without the noise and the pollution from heavy machinery, the idyllic lifestyle on the pastures is simple, peaceful and longed-for.

Life in the pastures is not all poetry, it’s also hard work. Against the freezing cold, women get up to milk the animals at 2:30 in the morning. After milking, they take animals to the faraway pastures for better feeding. At the end of the day, they use a special rope made of wool to herd the sheep back home.
