BOOM, Belgium – Ethnicraft, the Belgian furniture brand, is excited to introduce their first flooring collection with a series of kilim rugs.
Designed in collaboration with Ashtari, a contemporary carpet store in Antwerp, each kilim rug is made in Pakistan using 100 percent Pakisani-sourced sheep wool, that provides durability, warmth, and versatility.

Handcrafted through traditional weaving techniques, only the highest quality yarns are used, creating an interplay on texture and tone. In order to ensure durability and strength, each rug is handmade as one piece, bringing a sense of elegant simplicity to any space.

“There are so many people involved in producing the kilim rugs before they actually reach the customer, and that is a very exciting process. Each rug is truly handmade and that is very special, especially for Ethnicraft, which fits perfectly with the craftsmanship that they stand for," says Wendy Guns of Ashtari about the collection.

The collection includes a series of seven rugs, each in three sizes: 8’ x 5.5', 10' x 6.5', and 11.5' x 8.25'.
