Karastan Rugs Showcased at Greenspiration Home

Beautiful Karastan rugs, four of them, are featured in the Greenspiration Home, which was open to visitors during the High Point Market in April.
All these area rugs are woven in nearby Eden, NC, of 100% high quality New Zealand wool, a renewable resource produced using farming techniques that carefully preserve the health and beauty of the land for future generations.

War Rugs

Men on horseback with swords in their hand had been the nearest significant image relating to the war found on tribal rugs. But the invasion by the Russians gave Afghans an abrupt familiarity to modern warfare. As Afghan men went to the battlefield to fight, women (for nearly all rugs are woven by women) began weaving these area rugs.
