Shaw Living's latest addition to its shag program is the new Mirabella collection, which employs current trends in both color and yarn development. An ombre space-dyeing technique allows for each color to shift and blend, creating many shades within each rug. They are all machine woven in the United States with Shaw's own recyclable EverTouch soft nylon and come in seven sizes ranging from accent to area.
