19th C. Tibet Rug, Antique Sleeping/Runner Monastery Wangden tightly woven, very unusual yak wool. Each: the geometric motif and green inner field, the red border are quite unusual in Wangden structure. This has some regal appeal to it. Wangdens have a warp faced backing. These rugs are considerably heavier and more comfortable, they were 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
