Washington, DC – Tamarian Carpets recently accepted a gracious invitation by the government of Nepal to attend a cultural celebration at the residence of the Nepali Ambassador in Washington, DC. In attendance were Tamarian founder Steve Cibor and his wife Jennifer as well as Kevin Fusting, owner of Galleria Rugs, one of DC’s premier carpet showrooms and a long time supporter and top client of Tamarian. The event was a chance to speak to attendees about the strong bond Tamarian shares with the country of Nepal; their culture, resources, and most importantly, their people. Topics discussed included Tamarian’s recent investments in improved production infrastructure and continued partnership with TLC (Tibetan Labor Certification), a third-party company that monitors weaving in Nepal.

“We also had a chance to meet and spend time with members of the local Nepali community in the DC area”, remarked Fusting. “This was my favorite part of the day, learning more about the people and culture behind this incredible hand-made work.”

A Tamarian rug is a true work or art. Every step of production is done with the care and touch of the human hand. The techniques and tools have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. The materials are the finest nature offers; from the lanolin-rich, hand carded hand spun Tibetan wool, to the small lot dying process. Tamarians dye-masters use finely manipulated chrome dyes to enhance the wools natural boldness and luster, while maintaining its colorfastness for decades to come. Each rug is woven knot by knot on an upright loom, using the Tibetan loop Senneh knot. When weaving is completed, the rug is cut from the loom, sheared and trimmed, and given a final wash to bring out the rich hues and variations that are a hallmark of every Tamarian carpet.
