Karastan-Bel-Canto


A lusciously subtle color palette combines with classic Persian motifs to create a fresh and unusual combination that underscores carpet design as fine art. Within an open border a complex composition of branches, leaves, and stylized floral motifs are combined to create a garden of delight. The softly stria'd ground adds visual texture while the border's simplicity elevates this pattern to a new level of sophisticated elegance.

For much of its History, "Peshawar" - known in Ancient times as Purushapura - was one of the main trading centers on the ancient Silk Road and a major crossroads for various cultures between the Indian subcontinent and Central Asia.

In recent years, the name 'Peshawar' has become famous for a style of carpets that imbue a rustic, yet sophisticated elegance. Karastan has captured the essence of this free and easy style in the Shapura collection, by artfully combining colorations that are remarkably gentle - as though worn by the sands of time.

Rugs from the Shapura collection are woven in the U.S.A. of premium fully worsted New Zealand wool. each of the yarn colors used in creation of these patterns have been individually skein dyed for superior clarity, woven through the back and luster washed to create as closely as possible the look and feel of the magnificent hand knotted rugs that inspired them.
