Power & Love

[Dale Gottlieb]’s great sensitivity towards issues of injustice and inequality were innate from early on, and have paved the way for Dale’s philosophy toward life and her work. Primarily a painter, Dale decided to expand her medium by collaborating with a Tibetan carpet maker named Lobsang Tenzing who lives and works with his family in Nepal. She sends her paintings to Nepal and roughly three months later they return as rugs, beautifully hand woven using hand spun and hand dyed wool.

. . .

Dale’s rugs are woven at 80 or 100 knots per square inch. They are available in varying sizes as well, and she will create up to 25 editions in a series.

The above painting rug retails for $2200.
