19th Century Antique Tibetan Rug. I believe paired with tr30, Monastic geometric motif. Very tightly woven, unusually very very heavy. 19th C. Monastery Wangden Runner. Wangdens have a warp faced backing, sometimes with fringe. These rugs are considerably heavier and more comfortable to be used in the monastery. The sole purpose of the Wangden was monastic, these were not made for the individual. Rarely did they find their way to the private residence. expensive
