Karastan Rugs Kismet Santhiya Sand Stone by Virginia Langley Ivory
Stately, Old World artistry offers vintage inspired elegance and a versatile neutral gold, taupe and beige color palette in the transitional style of Karastan Rugs' Santhiya Area Rug, created in collaboration with legendary textile designer, Virginia Langley. A debut of Karastan Rugs' Kismet Collection, a name coined for its serendipitous meaning, this area rug is woven with the matte quality of Karastan Rugs' legendary New Zealand wool and the innovative stain protection and soft sheen of Karastan Rugs' exclusive SmartStrand Silk. Together, these premium yarns achieve a one-of-a-kind contrasting finish that only fate, or rather Kismet, could claim.
Kismet is defined as something significant happening that comes about by fate. Known since the 1920s for its beautiful premium quality wool rugs, Karastan Rugs has diversified in the millennium-introducing, SmartStrand, silk-synthetic rugs which will revolutionize the rug and carpet arena forever. Both wool and SmartStrand have inherent durability, sustainability, and performance attributes. Together, they achieve a remarkable product that optimizes the quality of each. The sophisticated matte finish of the New Zealand wool is contrasted with the silky sheen of the SmartStrand fiber creating a riot of textures, hand-feel, and surface variation. The rugs are finished with a low-profile, pile height reminiscent of timeworn, antique, Persian rugs and use the same wash techniques that Karastan Rugs has been using for decades. Archival patterns, reinvented in new and colorful ways, sit along styles that are completely abstract and textural.
