Nepal And Tibet Hand-Knotted Rugs – Rugman
What do you do when you want the comfort and quality of a hand-knotted rug (which, unfortunately, does not exist in machine-made rugs) and the fashionable style of a modern rug? In this case, Nepal and Tibet hand-knotted rugs would be an appropriate choice for you, since they have modern design and high-quality material, usually a combination of silk and wool.
Rugs from Nepal, Tibet and the Tibetan diaspora in India are collectively called Tibetan rugs. Tibetan rugs have existed since antiquity and some of the earlier ones have floral and tribal designs. They had a different knotting style than rugs of other regions and also lacked the intricacy of Persian rugs. Traditional Tibetan rugs, however, were never very popular on the world market, and so Tibet and Nepal rugs were little-known until their weavers accommodated themselves to the change in Western preferences toward modern home decor. When this happened, Tibetan rugs became very popular worldwide, particularly in the West, such that almost all Tibet and Nepal rugs on the market today have a modern design.
Today, thanks to Nepal’s and Tibet’s strong export industry and the popularity of modern rugs in the West, the rug industry in these regions are booming.

Finally, they last a long time. With proper care, hardwood floors offer the longest life span versus other flooring materials, the article says. And that threshold for proper care is pretty minimal.
