Mat produced by Tibetian weavers is made with Wool, Silk, and lots of other natural fibers.
are produced by sheering sheep in this process no animals are harmed or killed rather it is beneficial for sheep. Sheep are sheered on spring season. One of the biggest problems that comes up with increased wool yield for sheep is the accompanying wrinkles found on their bodies. These wrinkles collect urine and retain moisture, creating the perfect conditions for flies to lay eggs and putting the sheep at risk for fly strike (a potentially deadly condition where fly eggs hatch into flesh-eating maggots).
In wild sheep naturally shed their wool in spring. We just trim the wrinkles without sheering completely from young and elder sheep because they have less fat to retrain the clod.
We do not believe on cruelty and killing of the animals. No animals are harmed, killed, or suffered during our rug making process
