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.
