Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
Cyrus Artisan Rugs, a leading rug retailer based in Minneapolis, has just added an exclusive line of hand-knotted, traditional rugs. Cyrus, a well-established rug wholesaler known for their huge selection of styles, is proud to now offer legendary Tufenkian rugs in their showroom and on their website. The Kotana Collection is another of Tufenkian’s gorgeous traditional rugs.
The Kotana Collection feature rugs which are hand-knotted in India using the finest 100% mountain wool from Nepal. These rugs are hand knotted in a traditional manner and style that goes back hundreds of years. Using the same high quality Tibetan Highland virgin wool as the other traditional rugs from Tufenkian carpets, the wool is hand-carded, hand-spun, then finally hand-knotted directly in Nepal. Tufenkian rugs never use bleach, and by protecting the natural lanolin oil in the wool, Tufenkian traditional rugs maintain their natural soil and stain resistance. The Kotana Collection is characterized by this decadent pure wool construction, and vary from neutral tones with detailed accents to greens or reds in the rugs. The softness of the hand spun mountain wool reflects the fine craftsmanship of these artisan carpets. The carpets of the new Kotana Collection from Tufenkian rugs feature beautiful and elegant traditional floral designs. The five traditional designs are slightly different from one another, with each rug available in varying color palettes. The designs include the Montrose, Zara, Kilkenny, Dorset, and Persian Branches Rugs.
The Traditional Tibetan rugs of the Kotana construction fall between the Setana and Shakti Collections from Tufenkian rugs. Interestingly enough, Kotana Collection rugs have have an average pile height similar to the rugs of the Timpa traditional collection from Tufenkian rugs as well, but the Kotana rugs have more surface texture and striation. Specifically, the particular construction used on Kotana traditional rugs is known as the Tufenkian Wash.
