Quilt - a new hand-tufted rug from Kasthall with inspiration from Japanese and woven textiles
Kasthall is now launching Quilt, a rug with influences from Japanese Boro textiles and design icons Anna Albers and Sheila Hicks. The idea has been to design a rug where many layers of design elements intersect. When combined, its different colors, shapes, and textures create an elaborate, genuine, and recognizable design piece.
