19th C.Antique Monastery Wangden Tibetan Meditation Rug. Very unique and quite collectable- Tight Checkerboard with yak wool backing. Wangdens have a warp faced backing, usually 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. Mounted to the wall or on the floor, this is dramatic. expensive
