A perfect pairing of New Zealand Wool and SmartStrand® Silk™ is what the Kismet Collection from Karastan provides. Together they achieve a remarkable product that optimizes the quality of each: the sophisticated matte finish of the New Zealand Wool with the silky sheen of the SmartStrand® Silk™ fiber creating a riot of textures, hand-feel and surface variation. The rug are finished with the same wash techniques that Karastan has been using for decades lending the rugs a beautiful drape and soft hand and are finished with a low profile pile height reminiscent of timeworn antique Persian rugs.
The patterns are based on the old and new. Archival patterns, reinvented in new and colorful ways sit along styles that are completely abstract and textural. All of the rugs are realized in a range of neutrals, grays, creams, with accents of steel blue, pale wheat and aqua.
