He opened the volume with deliberate hesitation. The book had not been touched since the ’60s, and he knew its contents could change everything. Fixated on the marbled endpapers, he took a deep breath and turned the page.

Our luxurious Tibetan rugs are made of the highest-quality hand-spun Himalayan wool, and are hand-knotted to last for generations. Silk, allo, linen, bamboo and other natural fibers may be incorporated in the designs, for textural contrast.
Our area rugs help absorb and reduce noise and echo, especially in a large space. They create warmth and softness underfoot.
Because all of our rugs are made-to-order, we customize the size and colors to fit the needs of the space. Proper rugs enhance any interior environment, from residential to commercial to hospitality.
Proper also offers a bespoke option. Should you not find the perfect rug in our collection, we can work with you to create it. Tell us your story, and we can translate it into an heirloom to be passed down to future generations.
Proper rugs are certified by GoodWeave, an organization that is working to end child labor in the rug industry—so there’s peace-of-mind knowing that your rug was made by a skilled adult artisan.
Proper rugs are built to last. Unlike synthetic fibers, Himalayan wool won’t crumble—the fibers are much stronger. Because Himalayan wool has longer fibers than other types of wool, there will be less pilling with the rug, over time.
Lanolin-rich Himalayan wool allows dyes to permeate deeply into the fibers, and creates a natural lustre. Sumptuous Chinese silk adds softness and sheen.
Because a hand-knotted rug is made of knots, and not held together with glue, the overall structure of the rug is stronger, and the rug’s pile will wear more evenly than with a hand-tufted rug.
