Inspired by museum pieces and antiques, the 700 Series Collection of rugs is recreated from Persian, Turkoman and other handwoven orientals while maintaining authenticity to the finest detail. Each rug is Axminster woven through-the-back of the finest imported skein-dyed and lustre washed worsted wool yarns.
Tribal designs adapted from the Bakhtiyari tribes of the Chahar Mahal district of ancient Persia. These skilled rug designers produce some of the finest weaving and the most colorful and fascinating tribal rugs in the Mid-East. Villages of the Chahar Mahal had the substantial advantage of possessing their own master dyers, allowing the weavers a color palette of more variety and depth than found in most nomadic Bakhtiyar work. Karastan’s interpretations of these magnificent rugs recreate many of the same vivid coloring and subtle shadings of the original vegetable dyes. Woven of 1005 premium New Zealand wool, on our own unique looms and then lustre washed.
The timeless beauty of realistic floral designs in both traditional and contemporary colors is an imported feature of this collection. Axminster woven of 100% premium imported skein-dyed and lustre washed worsted wool yarns.
