Noreen Seabrook Twin Tigers Rug
Our first original design, inspired by the Tibetan tiger rug (reference in slide 3 of the product images)
The Tibetan tiger rug has long been a mystery until relatively recently. There are very few authentic, original Tibetan tiger rugs out there.
The tiger motif represented nobility, bravery, and status in Tibetan culture. It also is meant to act as a guardian, such as when a tiger rug is placed around a pillar like it is in the Dalai Lama's throne room.
When two tigers are shown on a rug, they typically are meant to be a male and a female, representing the principle of polarity in Tantric Buddhism. The "twin" tigers in the rug are both with their tails raised and are in fierce poses, representing strength through their stance.**
This rug is made entirely of Sunpat, which is a natural plant fiber. We thought that it would be informative and interesting to explain how Sunpat begins its "journey" on the way to becoming this carpet. This process is shown in slide 4 of the product images.
The final Natural Fiber Sunpat dyed with special tie dye is shown in slide 5 of the product images.
