Showroom Show Off

Posted by on November 20, 2009 in Products | 36 comments

Last night, Designtex opened up its new showroom at the D&D building. A great group of people gathered to celebrate including Kimberle Frost, vice president of design for Designtex (shown below beside her inspiration board). 



But the real highlight was the new Common Threads Collection by Designtex. The six-rug line was made possible through a collaboration with Arzu Studio Hope, which believes in helping Afghan women weavers by providing steady income and access to education and healthcare and overall, improving the living conditions in rural Afghanistan. The hand-knotted rugs are made using traditional Persian knot techniques; each rug can take up to a year to make. A booklet given out by Designtex tells the stories of some of the women involved in the making of these rugs and some of the photos below give an inside look at the process and finished product. 


Humanity, Prosperity, Unity, and Connectivity rugs


And for a little Kashmir feel, here is the new collection named after the Indian city, with vibrant colors and motifs.
