This web site was opened in April of 2010 to sell traditional Tibetan rugs and other Himalayan arts and crafts products.
The artelino GmbH was founded in 2001 as a small family business - located in Icking, Germany. Since 2001 we have sold and shipped worldwide more than 30,000 Japanese and Chinese art prints.
My passion for the people and cultures of Nepal and Tibet goes back to the late 1970s when I arrived for the first time in Nepal. This web site is both a business and a personal mission to establish the sales of these beautiful traditional Tibetan rugs as a win-win project, bringing a great product to the homes of European, American, Australian and Asian buyers, providing people in Nepal with an income and helping to preserve an old tradition and craft.
Please feel encouraged to contact me.
