Heritage Kirman: Karastan Revitalizes a 70-Year-Old Beauty
January 19, 2011
- Karastan’s Heritage Kirman Crimson is based on a classic rug that Karastan originally introduced in 1941. This timeless beauty brings back the signature style of the textiles of Persia with curvilinear medallions and graceful floral designs, rich color, the intricate use of multiple borders and a field thickly strewn with blooms and arabesques. It is a new addition to the Original Karastan Collection.
The Heritage Kirman Crimson has been updated with vivid shades of red and brown accented by peacock blue and bronze to create a lush, fresh look with intricate energy. It is woven on an Axminster loom of New Zealand wool, which is sustainable, renewable and combines softness with performance. It coordinates with Karastan’s Bella Rosa, another classic beauty in brilliant red.
Karastan is part of Mohawk Industries, a leading supplier of flooring for both residential and commercial applications.
