Yaks on the Move Carpet
Seen from above, herds on the move form irregular lines that merge and separate.
The wool was sourced from a local province, from sheep who live at 5000 metres. It takes a month for one person to spin the wool and then 40 days for 2 weavers to hand knot this unique piece.
This carpet was knotted in the tsakdup method, then scissor sculpted to obtain this unique texture.
