Karastan-Sereno


As serene and tranquil as a summer sky, our Sereno pattern combines elements from an early 20th century Sultanabad carpet in a flowing arrangement that settles gently into the subtle ombre of the cerulean blue ground. Accents of peridot, amber, citrine, amethyst and rose quartz add notes of perfect harmony to this gentle composition of rosettes, palmettes and flowering vines.

This Collection established Karastan's reputation as the maker of the world's finest power-loomed Oriental-design rugs. Patterns are carefully recreated from Persian, Turkoman, and other hand Orientals, including prized museum pieces and antiques.

First introduced in 1928, the Original Karastan Collection has become the worldwide standard for power-loomed rugs. So sure are we of the lasting quality of these rugs, in fact, that we guarantee every one for a full 20 years from the original date of purchase.

We start with a dense luxurious pile of fine Oriental's each color individually skein-dyed in the yarn for jewel-tone clarity.

Every rug in the Original Karastan Collection is woven on one of our Axminister looms, which, because of their similarity to hand looms, capture the luxury and beauty of the handwoven originals.

Our rugs are then Lustre-washed in much the same way native weavers of antiquity washed their creation; and finally, in one of the last steps before drying and inspection, buffed with the "Sultan's Slipper." Drawing bundles of old wool lightly across the surface of the dump rug, this process imparts a rich patina to the finish much like that found on antique rugs that have been walked on for years.
