This beautiful traditional Tibetan folding table has been made with great skill, love and care at our workshop in Nepal. Traditional Tibetan pieces like this are the antithesis of modern assembled furniture. These take about a month to make, are filled with intricate carvings/design, made from solid wood and require no assembly/tools.

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 and its beautiful fold. In fact, one might actually mistaken this table for a wood carving to hang on the wall. It features traditional Tibetan motifs such as the endless knot, dharma wheel and auspicious symbols. At the centre of the front panel are two white elephants guarding a tray filled with precious jewels. Although elephants are not native to Tibet, they are often featured in traditional art forms. The story of the Buddha's birth describes how his mother dreamt of a white elephant presenting her with a lotus flower. In the Buddhist practice of mandala offering, devotees offer elephants to the merit field with the wish that all sentient beings ride this great vehicle and go towards enlightenment.
