Antique Legends is a breathtaking collection of Axminster rugs with a 'vintage' finish. Styling is based on some of Karastan's...and the world's...most legendary antique carpet designs, yet the interpretation is fresh; and the colors are perfect for today's eclectic interiors. Karastan designers, utilizing multiple shades of a color within the design motifs, painstakingly recreate the 'abrash' or stria effect often found in aged vegetable dyes. After weaving, 'Antique Legends' rugs are given a special antique wash to further harmonize the colors with a rich 'vintage' patina. This rug collection is woven-through-the-back with 100% imported wool for long lasting performance and appearance retention.
