TYPE: a ‘tsuktruk’ style carpet from Dolpo, western Nepal

CIRCA: 1970’s

A tsuktruk style carpet of three joined panels made in the Dolpo region – which is north of the Himalayas bordering on Tibet – in far western Nepal. A mix of strong aniline dyes, some natural dyes and un-dyed wool in the pile. You either love it or hate it. Me, I like it, as I like art for arts sake, not because of preconceived opinions of what a carpet should look like. But each to their own of course.
