Kalaty Rug Corporation won one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, the America’s Magnificent Carpet Award (AMCA), which was presented at a gala ceremony during the International Area Rug Market in Atlanta earlier this month. Kalaty won for one of its heirloom-quality hand-knotted rug designs from the contemporary Juno Collection. The winning rug, JN-079, won in the hand-knotted category for rugs retailing between $50 and $100 per square foot.
Like a modern abstract work of art, JN-079 beautifully incorporates today’s highly sought-after fashion colors including explosive fashion-forward shades of blue, purple, pink, red, gray and yellow. Hand-knotted entirely of Silkette™, Kalaty’s trademarked proprietary viscose yarns, the rug is further enhanced by intricate hand carving for dramatic dimensional textural effects.
“Our product line has evolved over the past several years to include a range of contemporary designs such as those in our Juno collection. So, to have won this prestigious award for one of our carved abstract modern rugs is an especially gratifying win for Kalaty Rug Corporation,” says company president Ramin Kalaty. “We have identified the use of fashion colors as one of our major themes for 2019, and I can think of no better example of this color direction than the way we have fused together a number of energetic colors into the design of our award-winning hand-knotted Juno collection rug. Heirloom quality is a part of our heritage, and we proudly continue this heritage of bringing high-end, high-quality hand-knotted rugs to today’s market.”
