F J Kashanian Displays Not-Your-Usual Over-Dyed Rug at High Point


Over dyed Rug Border

Over the years, Gilda Kashanian, the lady who has made FJ Kashanian famous,  has never failed to delight and surprise me.  This year, she was showing a large Persian rug, which had been stripped and “over-dyed.”  But it wasn’t the standard over dye of a single color revealing the outline of the original pattern.  This rug looked as if it had been re-colored by hand, almost knot by knot in such away that a completely new pattern appeared to emerge.

While the over-dyed Persian rug caught my eye, I watched person after person being drawn in to the showroom by the rug to the right.  The wide open design and coloring captured their attention.
