4 of the 14 new collections that KAS is focusing on are: Morris, Perry, Portland and Provo.

Morris – A collection of 7 different handwoven jute and polyester printed chindis, the colors of these chindis are what make the rugs so unique and intriguing. Bohemian flair combined with a multi-textured feel of vintage prints add a rustic element and definite depth to your floors.

Perry – Perry presents textured geometric patterns with hi-lo effects and tassels, handwoven in India and available in 5 unique patterns. The colors are neutral enough to go with any décor and bold enough to make the room pop!

Portland – Machine woven rugs with a fringe create antique appeal out of polyester printed patterns! These rugs have a striking washed vintage traditional element to them. Available in 7 different patterns and all unique in color and design.

Combining trendy pop colors and a thin, textured pile, these rugs are easy to decorate around making this a great collection for anyone with any type of lifestyle indoors or out.
