Ratrani is Nepali for 'Queen of the Night'.

This is a modern design of an ancient textile, the traditional Nepali radhi rug. Made from hand-spun and handwoven wool, the radhi (Nepali for this kind of 'rug') was made by loom in mountain village households. The skill involved in weaving a radhi was such an important trait, that while looking for a possible bride for their sons, the villagers would make sure that the future daughter-in-law would know the art of weaving these woolen rugs! 

Please note: because this rug is entirely made by hand, there may be small imperfections and uneven features. This is a part of the charm of a craft such as this! Size dimensions may differ by a few inches/centimetres, as well as the weight.
