Safari Tibetans, designed in line with current furniture trends and constructed of Tibetan wool and colored with vegetable dyes;
Jewel ofIndia, a cashmere and silk group featuring new pale-toned designs patterned after a mid-19th century Persian Farahan Sarouk;
New Asian Tibetans, a Tibet-made wool collection of updated Asian-inspired themes like cherry blossoms and bamboo grass;
