Rug History
Nepal is an ancient land with a rich cultural heritage and strong craft tradition. Thousands of years of undisturbed cultural development and the enduring traditional skill of craftsmanship, handed down from generation to generation, has produced a rich array of works of art revealing the genius of the Nepalese in all forms. Like other handicrafts, the rug is an age-old product of Nepal.

In the 4th century the people of the valley started weaving rugs and blankets made from sheep wool. The Magars (the Mongoloid ethnic group) of the valley used to raise sheep as their ancestral off-farm activity, card the wool and sell it to the household weavers. Every household had a loom fixed against the wall and tied around the waist of the weaver while weaving.

However the development of an export quality rug actually initiated with the influx of the Tibetan refugees in the early sixties. The original source of the modern Nepalese rug weaving goes to the Tibetan refugees living in Nepal. One used to see the woolen rugs being woven where the refugees settled. Later the local Nepalese people learned the rug weaving technique from the Tibetans and have developed the industry into the largest foreign exchange earning industry in the country. Credit also goes to the Swiss Agency for Technical Assistance (SATA) for their contribution, in the development of the rug industry in Nepal through financial & technical support to the Tibetan refugees’ re-settlement programs. In the beginning, it was launched as a source of livelihood for the Tibetan refugees and marketing was limited to tourists visiting the kingdom. Efforts to gain access in the international market arena paid-off in 1964 when the first commercial shipment left to Europe, namely Switzerland. With vision and entrepreneur skill it transformed into a nationally recognized commercial commodity and remains today as the most important export product from Nepal.
