Peshawar rugs - a specific type of hand knotted production from Pakistan and India - have unique color effects originally achieved by hand spinning especially twisted wool that produced subtle nuances of color when dyed and woven. Designs used are traditional, yet relaxed, with freshened color palettes geared toward today's interiors. Karastan's master designers have re-created this stunning visual texture using meticulously placed nuances of color. The Shapura collection offers the design forward consumer the unique texture that was, until now, not consistently available in a high quality machine woven rug.About the Brand
The people of Karastan make Karastan rugs exceptional. In 1928, the brand began with the dream of producing machine-made oriental rugs that recreate the detailed craftsmanship of imported hand-woven rugs. The development of the Axminster loom, which is still in use today, allowed the creation of machine-made rugs that were nearly impossible to distinguish from handmade. Over the last five years, Karastan has redefined the meaning of luxury by creating collections of rugs that embody the rich history of craftsmanship and design while embracing new fiber technology. The demand for these rugs continues to be tremendous, and this explosive volume has allowed for more improvements to continue this path of innovation. The Karastan name is synonymous with quality, beauty and durability. Karastan controls every step of the manufacturing process from fiber to fashion and is still made in the USA.
