Premium Bamboo Katag - 7’
Katags (khataks) are Tibetan ceremonial scarves offered to one’s teachers or anyone who is being honored. It is said that offering katags is the Tibetan adaptation of the Indian tradition of offering flower garlands. Since sourcing flowers large enough to make garlands are near impossible in most parts of Tibet, flower garlands have been replaced by silk scarves woven with auspicious symbols.
We recently found a family that makes this one-of-it’s-kind katag - a couple of Tibetan grandsons are helping their grandmother market the katags that she makes. This is one of our most exciting new finds in Kathmandu in our last pilgrimage there!
