Seen in the Himalayas in the Chanthang desert in Eastern Ladakh. 

Their living spaces

Let’s gp in …

To see their home & their weavings

​(videa to follow later)

Volunteers:  husband & niece

Handnade for self use, woven in 3 parts and stitched together. Used as rugs, seat covers and blankets, these are woven in winter when there isn’t much else to do. Each piece takes a month of 4-5 hours of weaving a day to finish. 

Simple. Traditional. Signatures of Identity.
