No Backing; Karastan’s Axminster weave incorporates a cotton foundation and wool pile with a woven through-the-back construction that closely duplicates the look and feel of a hand-knotted rug.
These rugs are a masterful mix of timeless traditional designs and updated colorations with a fresh point of view. Backgrounds and pattern motifs contain multiple color shadings, creating a softened visual texture that results in a relaxed appeal appropriate for both traditional and casual decorating styles. Representing a standard of excellence in wool rugs, this collection has been crafted using dozens of individually skein dyed yarns for jewel tone clarity. The yarn is then woven through the back and finished with Karastan’s Lustre-Wash process to re-create as closely as possible the look and feel of a hand-woven rug.
