This beautiful traditional Tibetan folding table has been made with great skill, love and care at our workshop in Nepal. In contrast with modern manufacturing methods, a table like this takes approximately 3-4 weeks to make. Tibetan carpenters take great pride in their work. Usually, they are involved in all aspects of furniture making including carpentry/joinery, wood carving and painting. Another hallmark of Tibetan furniture is the minimal use of nails and screws. This table might also be the easiest piece of furniture that you have ever assembled.

We were drawn to this particular piece because of its use of vibrant colours. It features traditional Tibetan motifs such as the endless knot, dharma wheel and auspicious symbols. At the centre of the front panel are a pair of dragons guarding a flaming jewel. In Buddhism and most Asian cultures, dragons are considered auspicious. Their sound is thunder (druk-kay= Thunder in Tibetan which translates into 'Dragon Voice'), which brings life giving rain and fertility. The jewels guarded by the dragons represent wisdom and health. Vairochana Buddha’s sacred guardian is the Dragon, and in Tibetan Buddhism, they are considered to be Dharma protectors.
