Item Description


Grrrr!!!! These great looking hand-knotted woolen Tiger pelts are made by Tibetan artisans in Nepal. They are a small size rug that are popular also as meditation seats. Tibetans believe that meditating on a tiger rug will protect the meditator from negative influences, seen and unseen, and enhance the power of one's meditation practice. Tibetan rugs are renowned for their quality and longevity and are avidly collected in the world of Asian art.

Garuda Trading was established in 1999 and provides fine quality dharma items from the Himalayan regions. The company is based in Cornwall, surrounded by ocean, in the southwest of England. Their online collection expands at a pace that keeps step with their understanding of the items they source. Their interest is due partly to seeds planted during owner James Wainwright's early Buddhist years as an ordained monk. As practicing Buddhists, the view of right livelihood has been extremely important to the manner in which the business has unfolded. Positive customer feedback shows that Garuda Trading continues to contribute to helping the buddhadharma flourish outside of Asia. It is a great source of joy to the owners to know that, in some small way, they help the dharma practice of others.

Details: 100% Tibetan wool; 100 Knots quality; 32" long x 28" wide
