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

White pagoda, yaks grazing on green pastures, cosy tents. These idyllic landscapes attract thousands of trekkers from around the globe to hike on the rugged mountain trails and explore the holy mountains.

Undoubtedly, trekking is the best way to experience Tibet. People caring backpacks, wearing sturdy hiking shoes, and a handy alpenstock are a common occurrence in these regions. Exploring the beauty and secrets of Tibet.

The most famous trekking route in Tibet is the one that leads to Kangrinboqe. For Tibetan Buddhists this peak is the center of the world. It is known as a Holy Mountain in Hinduism, Jainism, and Bon. Tibetan Buddhists believe that if a person circles Kangrinboqe once, their sins will forgiven away. And if a person circles the Holy Mountain 108 times, he would become a Buddha.

The white pagodas are a common sight around Tibet. They are the symbol of sacred sites. Every one symbolises a presence of the holy spirit, while some house a Buddhist relic inside. People come to worship the white pagodas to express their faith.
