Many Tibetans believe that meditating on a tiger carpet will protect you from negativity and enhance your meditation practice. Tibetan carpets and tiger rugs are truly beautiful pieces of art known for their quality and longevity.
When Sander Cohen started DharmaShop 20 years ago, the Tibetan tiger rug was one of the first products we carried. He simply loved them and still always has one on display at home.
Made in the traditional manner, each design is cut by hand to create a 3-dimensional look that emulates a real tiger skin. They are handmade in Nepal of 100% wool in the traditional hand woven manner with 100 knots per square inch.
The tiger is known to symbolize unconditional confidence and disciplined awareness, kindness, and modesty. It is associated with confidence, dominance over the forest, and the air element.
