Village Wall Carpet
In Tibet, walls are skillfully erected from a careful choice of stones wedged against each other with the help of rock slivers. There is no mortar needed to achieve a perfect balance, one to make a wall last hundreds of years.
Village Wall is hand spun and knotted from 3 natural shades, combining the wool of the Tibetan sheep and the yak.
