Handicrafts: Tibetan Crafts

A Tibetan carpet Weaving carpet as a craft is one of the most ancient arts. It has been a tradition to use carpets in hills of Himalayas since ages.

In the pre- independence era less of carpets were manufactured locally. But after independence, with the introduction of various training programmes, large number of people adopted carpet weaving. Also a large number of Tibetans settlers in Kullu Valley added to the growth of carpet industry.

Tibetan style of carpets are most popular because in these carpets every single design like a dragon, lotus, golden wheel or snow lion has a unique tradition behind it, depicting power, prosperity, purity, happiness, protection and good fortune.
