Beyond the Loom: The People Who Crafted Rugs in Kathmandu, Monsoon 2023

By Narendra Shrestha with Ryan Higgins

‘You need to show people how their rugs are made.’ This is the belief of Ryan Higgins of Tamarian, a US-based company that designs and imports fine handmade rugs knotted in the Tibetan tradition.  

This book documents the lives of the weavers making Tamarian’s rugs in Kathmandu over eight days in July 2023. Award-winning photographer Narendra Shrestha’s brief was to document all the processes of rug making, focusing on the human element. In his photos, we see the joy found in the everyday, the exquisite and labour-intensive art that is weaving, and the ancient blending seamlessly with the modern.  

Beyond the Loom is a love letter to Nepal, its people and the inherent beauty of the handmade.
