Chair Seat Pads from Dale Gottlieb

We're very happy to introduce the work of Dale Gottlieb into the shop. She's made a limited edition of four seat pads just for us which are currently featured in our store window. You can use these beautiful mini-rugs as cushions for your favorite chairs or hang them on the wall. 
Seat Pads by Dale Gottlieb, $120 each

Dale Gottlieb’s limited edition Story Rugs® have earned her both national and international recognition over the last nineteen years, when she began her collaboration with Tibetan master carpet maker Lobsang Tensing. Through this steadfast relationship, Dale has consistently been able to produce and deliver unique and exquisite art rugs of all sizes for clients all over the world, using the traditional Tibetan hand knotted rug technique. Tensing’s factory is based in Kathmandu, Nepal, and is child-labor free.
Seat Pads, $120 each

Gottlieb’s paintings, as well as her rugs, have been exhibited in galleries and museums across the country. She has also been a children’s book author and artist since 1989 and has published twenty-eight books.
