Pherri Carpet Indigo


pherri (Ladakhi) - name for this heritage textile

This carpet is made from hand-spun beige and white sheep wool yarn with small designs of indigo dyed sheep wool and the rare beige yak wool. It is woven in the traditional Changthang style, on a portable backstrap loom characteristic for the nomadic communities. This type of carpet is called "Pherri" and traditionally used as a blanket. It is a flat weave and approximately 7mm thick. The carpet consists of 6 panels. It creates a really warm yet minimalist atmosphere.
It is spun and woven by our team of settled nomads close to the city of Leh.
