Tibetan Khaden Carpet

This simple yet captivating Tibetan khaden rug features a central medallion flanked by two complex arboreal motifs on a red field, and a wide border filled with playful patterns reminiscent of foliage and butterflies.

With the exception of large, ornate rugs specially made for monasteries or high-ranking nobles, Tibetan carpets were traditionally utilitarian household items. They were small (no more than 3' x 6'), and they were usually used as mats to sleep or sit on, rather than to cover floors or decorate walls. The most common Tibetan rugs, known as khaden, were woolen sleeping carpets approximately 3' x 5' in size.
