Kismet is defined as something significant happening that comes about by fate. Known since the 1920s for its beautiful premium quality wool rugs, Karastan has diversified in the millennium-introducing, SmartStrand, silk-synthetic rugs which will revolutionize the rug and carpet arena forever. Both wool and SmartStrand have inherent durability, sustainability, and performance attributes. Together, they achieve a remarkable product that optimizes the quality of each. The sophisticated matte finish of the New Zealand wool is contrasted with the silky sheen of the SmartStrand fiber creating a riot of textures, hand-feel, and surface variation. The rugs are finished with a low-profile, pile height reminiscent of timeworn, antique, Persian rugs and use the same wash techniques that Karastan has been using for decades. Archival patterns, reinvented in new and colorful ways, sit along styles that are completely abstract and textural.
The central medallion of Karastans Karma Woven Area Rug in Silver is reminiscent of ancient mandalas, known to be representative of the universe. Platinum icy silver is accented by hues of aqua blue and grey. A debut of Karastans Kismet Collection, a name coined for its serendipitous meaning, this area rug is woven with the matte quality of Karastans legendary New Zealand wool and the innovative stain protection and soft sheen of Karastans exclusive SmartStrand Silk. Together, these premium yarns achieve a one-of-a-kind contrasting finish that only fate, or rather Kismet, could claim.
Karastan warrants its English Manor Collection, Kismet Collection, Manifesto Collection, Sierra Mar Collection and Titanium Collection against manufacturing defects for a period of ten (10) years from the original date of purchase. Full warranty details can we viewed on the Karastan website.
