Mid 19th C. Antique Textile Art Nambu Tigma Horse Blanket. Nice variations in tigma, deep green color. Very beautiful and strong piece.

Nambu is the tibetan word for this woven wool style and the tigma for the tie and dye process that creates these crosses. Crosses in Tibetan Buddhism are similar to the swastika. It signifies good luck and well being.
