We take pride in our hand crafted products
Tiger Rug takes great pride in creating hand-knotted carpets that we consider today’s masterpieces and tomorrow’s heirlooms. The reason – our wool. The pure wool used in our hand-knotted Tibetan oriental rugs comes from sheep that graze the Himalayan mountain range at elevations that touch the sky. The extreme climate in this region at these altitudes results in a wool rich in lanolin, which in our opinion, produces the finest wool for the weaving of carpets. Our master weavers then put to use their artistic talents to create some of the most truly unique and beautifully-crafted carpet designs available today.
Although we specialize in craftsman carpet designs reminiscent of the Arts & Crafts Movement, we offer a wide range of traditional, transitional and contemporary designs. Any one of our designs can be customized in any color, size or shape desired. Please take a few moments to view our many Collections, learn why the hand-knotted weaving process is and has been so important to global sustainability, watch our production video to view just who and what is involved in the making of a hand-crafted carpet, and, please, don’t hesitate to contact us. With the benefit of nearly two decades of producing and importing hand-knotted and hand-woven carpets, and only carpets, we welcome the opportunity to share with you this expertise so your visit with us will be a rewarding and enjoyable experience!
