This signature Karastan collection has come to exemplify style, luxury and beauty. Incorporating the timeless and classic elements of Oriental rug design, todays Karastan rugs are produced in a manner that combines are, technology and performance. Rugs of the Original Karastan Collection are meticulously woven in the USA of premium fully worsted New Zealand wool and represent a standard of excellence in wool rugs. The colors used in creation of this collection have been individually skein dyed, Axminster woven and finished with Karastans patented Lustre- Wash process to create the look and feel of the magnificent hang knotted rug that inspired it.
The original antique from which this Kirman Medallion pattern rug was adapted probably dates from the 19th Century. The elaborate curvilinear design and field thickly strewn with arabesques and natural floral elements is a typical characteristic of rugs classified as Kirmans. Another almost constant characteristic is the use of many borders...usually five or seven...often decorated with plant vines. Also typical is the variety of colors with the predominance of ivory, blues and reds. The color palette used in this pattern comes entirely from our Multi-Color Panel Kirman, making it a perfect complement. Emphasis has been placed on the rich indigo blue, brick and madder reds, tobacco golds and browns, olives and accents of soft aqua, soft coral and burgundy. Throughout the field, the colors have been abrashed using many shades of each color, providing a stria effect typical of aged vegetable dyed yarns.
