our tibetan mill in kathmandu - hand-knotted rugs

emma gardner design, llc is partnered with the finest Nepalese producers of Tibetan carpets, a mill that keeps alive the tradition of a centuries old native craft while incorporating the latest techniques and expertise for color-matching and innovative constructions. Hand-carded, hand-spun and pot-dyed, Tibetan or New Zealand wool and the finest Chinese silk, are hand-knotted to produce rugs with a unique luster and generations-long durability.

Our mill has one of the largest looms in Nepal and is able to make rugs of almost any size and shape. Variations in pile height, knot count and combinations of wool and silk are also available.

Certified by GOODWEAVE, with whom we have partnered since our inception, our partners never employ children and have been recognized for their progressive employment practices, winning numerous awards for excellence from the Nepalese government.
