Speaking about new home-line, Ahmad Abbas Mirza Creative Head, Abbas Corporation (parent company of ABBAS CARPETS & ABBAS HOME) said “Being ahead of the curve is a perpetual struggle; it requires innovation, a think-out-of-the-box approach, as well as an unrelenting need for change – all the time. It took years of research, as well as multiple trips abroad, to get acquainted with some of the most prestigious sources of home-décor products. Given that a handmade carpet almost always ties an entire room together, we wanted our home-décor collection to provide a similar experience – a seamless product ahead of its time”.
