Shapura comes from the word Purushapura which was a popular trading spot on the historic Silk Road. Many rug dealers traded there as it was a hub between Central Asia and the Indian regions. Now Karastan is reflecting the style of those graceful creations in their own collection. Shapura rugs are known for their timeless sophistication as well as their gentle, pastoral comfort. These rugs are carefully woven and dyed in an effort to emulate the appearance and impression of the brilliant originals from the Silk Road.
