or Call to Order

In a desire to intro­duce color in modern and flex­i­ble ways to live with, the carpet Kavir is avail­able in 9 shades. The distinct colours present a modern and joyful rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of the tradi­tion­ally knotted Persian carpet.

The fringe detail becomes more than just a design element as it respect­fully reveals the hand- woven frame­work of the carpet. The Kavir is avail­able in the perfect’ shade of taupe with mustard colored fringe, French salon’ shade of pale mint contrasted with turquoise blue fringe, hunter green is accented with espresso brown, calm ocean blue joins an emerald green fringe, antique pink is accented with coral red fringe, zinc yellow joins a fawn brown fringe, sapphire blue is contrasted with a violet fringe along with two avail­able shades of light to dark grey finished with char­coal colored fringe.

Made with natu­rally dyed wool yarns with a high density of 80 knots per square inch, Kavir is produced in a socially and envi­ron­men­tally respon­si­ble manner by a family-owned busi­ness in Nepal without the involve­ment of child labor.
