During his travels to northern India, Jakub Staron visited a village between India and Pakistan. Near the Hindu Kush Mountains where tribal style huts dot the valley, he found that one of the regions industries was making rugs for their local market. He studied their carpets and discovered that they had the look of hundred-year-old rugs. Jakub enquired as to the age of the goods-only to discover that they were only a few months old. Staron was inspired by the aged quality that was achieved without any acid or tea washes. He felt that with the right colors and patterns a carpets could be created naturally looking like an antique. Hence, the well-admired Hindu Kush collection was brought to life in a wool, Afghani texture, with a wide variety of distinctive designs and colors.
