Felted Wool Rugs, by Way of the Himalayas

Janet Hall November 09, 2012

French design meets Himalayan craftsmanship in Muskhane's line of soft, plush felted wool rugs, which are warm, durable, and washable.

Based in Kathmandu, the French design house Muskhane makes sustainable and fair trade felted wool rugs handcrafted by artisans in the Himalayas using sheep's wool, water, soap, and natural dyes. Muskhane felt rugs and accessories are available through San Francisco-based Lotus Bleu, including a number of custom designs, the result of collaborations between Muskhane and Lotus Bleu's owner, Jeannie Fraise.
