New Wools and Wool Blends Warm Karastan Collections in the 2016 Winter Markets

SUGAR VALLEY, GA, November 20, 2015: For the 2016 winter markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas, Karastan is debuting new collections and new rugs in warm, soft, naturally renewable New Zealand wool and silky wool/viscose blends.

Introducing the Manifesto Collection

Karastan’s Manifesto Collection offers a global feel in eight rugs woven of pure New Zealand wool on Van De Weile looms in the USA. This space-dyed collection uses 10 colors, but each color has six components so there are actually 50-60 colors in each rug. The soothing palette includes creams, silvery gray, slate and neutrals mixed with sea glass, tobacco and rosewood.

Manifesto’s patterns include Persian designs such as Sultanabads, Khotans and Agras. There are also more transitional patterns that incorporate repeating medallions and art deco feels.

New Titanium Collection

The Titanium Collection from Karastan offers a textural, casual feel. The patterns of the rugs in this collection are distressed traditional and transitional motifs. Some patterns are distressed to the point where the pattern nearly disappears, giving a very worn textural appearance, which lends the rugs a more casual and modern feel. Made of a blend of New Zealand wool and viscose fiber, they have a combination of a matte and sheen effect. The colors in this collection are quiet and understated neutrals that are enlivened with metallic-looking viscose yarns.

New Addition to Karastan’s Sovereign Collection

Robin’s Egg Anastasia joins Karastan’s Sovereign Collection, an elegant collection that has a regal ambiance, lush designs and stunningly rich colors. Anastasia is multicolored with pops of red, indigo and gold, while the new robin’s egg version is more calm and serene with watery aqua blue, mocha and cream. Robin’s Egg Anastasia is woven on Van De Weile looms in the USA of a blend of soft New Zealand wool and viscose yarns. Anastasia’s design is a beautiful composition of palmettes, vines and ferns. 

New English Manor Rugs

Relaxed elegance for everyday living is the hallmark of the rugs in Karastan’s English Manor Collection. The 2016 additions to English Manor will update and elevate this beloved collection. English Manor rugs are known for their time-proven colors: rich garnet red, navy and slate blue, gold and tan. The new English Manor rugs, which are woven of soft, durable New Zealand wool on Van De Weile looms in the USA, will continue to offer the traditional colors that resonate with Karastan consumers.
