Karastan in Dallas
At the 1933 World’s Fair, visitors flocked to see and even walk on a new curiosity. Marshall Field’s American-made rug, the showmen said, was just as beautiful as its pricey, imported counterparts. Millions of feet passed over the rug that day and brought messy fair food spills with them. The next morning, the fair-goers returned to see the showmen had cleaned just half of the rug and put it back on display. The dirty half was almost unrecognizable. The cleaned half was practically immaculate. The world had just been introduced to the quality, durability and recovery power of Karastan.
For over 80 years, Karastan has pioneered rug and carpet weaving technology. The first Karastan rugs to come off the line were so advanced and intriguing that the trade press dubbed them “Mystery Rugs.” As part of the Mohawk carpeting family, Karastan continues their traditions today by setting the standard for stain-resistance, eco-friendliness and trend-forward design.
You can spot Karastan products on television shows like HGTV’s Property Brothers, in magazines like House Beautiful and in productions like Elle Décor’s Women in Design. From naturally dirt-resistant wool to high tech SmartStrand Forever Clean, Karastan carpets look magnificent and feel incredible underfoot.
Tough Enough for Life’s Troubles
In 2005, Karastan’s SmartStrand became the first new fiber type to be introduced in over 50 years. Over a decade later, SmartStrand is still the only fiber on the market to have permanent, built-in stain resistance that won’t fade over time. Spills, dirt and allergens clean up readily and your carpet stays glorious.
SmartStrand is a unique material partially derived from sustainable, plant-based sources. While typical carpeting materials soak up stains, SmartStrand’s core is naturally stain-resistant. By adding a layer of ultrafine nanoparticles, called Nanoloc technology, SmartStrand’s Forever Clean line has become the gold standard of permanent stain and dirt resistance.
Better for the Earth
From materials to energy consumption, Karastan is devoted to greener manufacturing methods for their carpeting. All Karastan carpets are CRI Green Label certified and can contribute to certifying NAHB Green Home Building projects.
Karastan weaves its carpeting on energy-conserving looms and uses sustainable materials like wool and corn-derived SmartStrand.
