Carper Factory

With their excellent practicability and imposing beauty, Tibetan carpets have become a world -class brand eponymous with those of Persia and Turkey as the three most famous carpets in the world. Lhasa Carpet Factory is the biggest and the best in Tibet, mainly producing traditional Tibetan Carpet, located to the west of Tibet University.

Tibet carpets are especially thick, strong and resilient, made by experienced weavers using old-style vertical looms. The carpets feel soft and the gorgeous color does not easily fade. The designs of Tibetan carpets embody a flavor of the religions, culture, economy and people and the aesthetic of the patterns are always pleasing, mainly replicating the murals in temples, including dragons, phoenixes, flowers, grasses, birds, animals and landscape pictures. Recently, embroideries of some great projects such as the Potala Palace, Mt. Everest and Great Wall of China are also popular.

Tibetan Carpets are always a hot seller both home and abroad. A Tibetan Carpet is an ideal purchase as a wonderful reminder of a trip to Tibet.
