Pasargad to launch handmade collections

New York - The 109-year-old, third-generation, India-based rug house Pasargad is coming to High Point Market with new collections of rugs that includes flat weave designer patterns priced specifically for online retailers and furniture stores.

Dubbed the Sahara collection, the new rugs are handmade of wool.

Patterns include chevron stripes, tile and trellis looks and other refreshed Moroccan-inspired styles in vibrant, two-toned color stories. The cheerful palette is achieved with natural dyes and includes turquoise, sunflower, tangerine, soft gray, grass green, taupe and navy.

"These modern flat weave designs offer a dynamic style story at an affordable price," said Beni Isfahani, president.

A 6x9 will retail for about $450.

Pasargad's showroom at High Point is located in the Suites at Market Square, Mezzanine Level, space #1035.

The company will also be showing other new varieties within its signature Persian, European, Indian, Turkish and Caucasian designs. The company specializes in Agras, Serapis, Sarouks, Kashans, Kirmans, Oushaks, Sultanabads, Savonneries, Kazaks, Qashqa'is, and Afshars.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
