Spotlight On: Tashi Murik
LondonTashi and Pema are a husband and wife team. It has been their dream to make exquisite Tibetan carpets available to the people of the UK.
Tashi developed a great passion for Himalayan arts, including textiles and carpets, early in his life. His sister Ashi is an accomplished rug weaver and has had the honor of weaving rugs for His Holiness The Dalai Lama and His Holiness Penor Rinpoche (head of the Nyingmapa order of Tibetan Buddhism), as well as for other eminent lamas. Tashi Murik offers an exciting collection of high quality contemporary hand-knotted rugs at an unbeatable price.
Rugs are created to the highest aesthetic and technical standards using combinations of pure Tibetan wool, silk, and pashmina. Silk and Pashmina are blended to highlight a specific motif or to weave the main design in a rug, and this creates a wonderful shimmering contrast. Each rug is skillfully hand-knotted by peace loving people of the Himalayas, and the traditional process minimizes the number of chemicals used, which is beneficial for the environment. These artisan quality rugs are truly works of art and whether you lay them on the floor or hang them on your wall, they will add a new dimension to your living space and will forever provide a rich visual feast.
