Octans Rugs are all hand made in 100% pure Tibetan Himalayan Highland wool.
Our Rugs are modern beauty in itself created by the able hands of skillful Tibetan & Nepalese artisans in the Himalayan country of Nepal with the skill passed on from generation to generation.
All our rugs are completely handknotted of the finest Tibetan Himalayan Sheep Wool. Every lot of this Himalayan Sheep Wool, rich in lanolin, is washed, hand spun and hand dyed that provide vibrancy, consistency and style.
The Tibetan weaving technique is unique. Unlike other weaving traditions, the knots of a Tibetan rug are tied over a rod. When a row of knots is completed, the pile is cut and the rod is slipped out, leaving a flat and plush wool surface.
This ancient art form lives on each of our Rug. Octans Rugs collection combines original designs and traditional weaving technique to create elegant and modern natural floor covering.
An average 8’x10’ rug will take weavers approximately 14 weeks to complete and contains between 900,000 to1,000,000 individual knots !
We also weave custom-made rugs for our clients. We use environmentally friendly dyes and our rugs are 100% Hand Made and reasonably priced also.
