A perfect storm of New Zealand wool and SmartStrand, the rugs of the Tempest collection continue to embody Karastan Rugs' fashion legacy. Featuring vivid hues of midnight black, ruby red, and cobalt blue mixed with neutral greys and ivories, the patterns within this collection are the next step in color innovation. Together this marriage of fibers achieves a remarkable product that optimizes the quality of each: the sophisticated matte finish of the New Zealand wool is cleverly contrasted with the silky sheen of the SmartStrand Silk fiber.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.
