For us Contemporary Rugs are more than just another line of artistic product; they are our passion and our specialty! With access to one of the largest collections of fine Nepalese rugs anywhere in the world, Rugs By Zhaleh now stocks many designs in an unprecedented array of sizes from 6 by 9 to 12 by 15 and larger. This versatility has afforded our clients instant access to rugs in their selected pallets of color, design and an availability that was never thought possible just a few years ago.
Every hand-woven Nepalese rug is a true work of art. Every step of production is done with the care and touch of the human hand. The techniques and tools have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. The materials are the finest nature offers; from the lanolin-rich, hand-carded, hand-spun Tibetan wool, to the small lot dying process. Our dye-masters use finely manipulated chrome dyes to enhance the wool’s natural boldness and luster, while maintaining its colorfastness for decades to come. Each Nepalese rug is woven knot by knot on an upright loom, using the Tibetan Loop Senneh knot. When weaving is complete, the rug is cut from the loom, sheared and trimmed, and given a final wash to bring out the rich hues and variations that are the hallmark of every fine carpet.
