These rugs are a masterful mix of timeless traditional designs and updated colorations with a fresh point of view. Backgrounds and pattern motifs contain multiple color shadings, creating a softened visual texture that results in a relaxed appeal appropriate for both traditional and casual decorating styles. Representing a standard of excellence in wool rugs, this collection has been crafted using dozens of individually skein dyed yarns for jewel tone clarity. The yarn is then woven through the back and finished with Karastans Lustre-Wash process to re-create as closely as possible the look and feel of a hand-woven rug.
This scrolling vine and blossom design is punctuated with oversize palmettes and serrated leaves typical of both Agra and Lahore carpets woven during the mid 17th century Mogul dynasty. Red was a favored ground color of these carpets and Karastans interpretation is punctuated with rich, fresh, easy to live with color.
