Nepalese-Tibetan Rugs

Hand-knotted rugs have been made in the Nepalese highlands by indigenous craftmen for centuries, but these items (known locally as Raadi, Paakhi and Gailaincha) were almost exclusively woven for personal use, and, in a commercial sense, the Nepalese rug-making industry only began with the introduction of Tibetan refugees (a mass exodus of Tibetan refugees started in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and since then all Tibetan rugs and other arts and crafts have been produced by Tibetan exiles). Families, or groups of friends, set up simple wooden looms in their homes, and, as the market for their rugs began to expand, these operations developed into small workshops, often consisting of little more than two or three looms in a cowshed. With the added support of the Nepalese government and international aid agencies, rug-making has developed into Nepal’s single most important export industry.

Silk Curtains For Luxurious Look Of Your Home

Everyone is in one way or another concerned about how flashy their houses interior design. One of the best ways to fashion your room is to give it a typical Hollywood-like fascination. This can be achieved through the use of silk curtains that are light colored for the balcony, a mixture of delicate and flashy shadings for the bedroom, light-white colored prints for the bathrooms, and so on. Since these curtains are made of the best quality materials, they are reasonably high priced. Silk is normally a flexible and sturdy fiber that can be mixed with cotton, linen or rayon to make it stronger and convey a distinct impression.

Even though these silk curtains are the best for your house and better for your living room, there are a few things that must be put into consideration before setting out to purchase them. The first thing to consider is the measurement. Be sure that the drapes will cover the doors or windows to a complete extent including the extra potion at the bottom.
