Beginning as Marshall Field & Co., Karastan have been making different forms of carpet since 1928. Their beginning came when visitors at two World Fairs quickly called The Karastan Rug a “Wonder Rug”, due to its high quality and beauty. It was also due to the fact that buyers were able to see just how Karastan cleaned up better than any other rug on the market. Buyers of Karastan rugs would also go on to find that their products were durable, lasting long past other rugs and carpet.
In 1948, Karastan once again wowed American customers with their Kara-Loc Method of weaving. This special method of weaving produced innovations in carpet and rug fashion including multi-colored design. Thanks to this method fans of Karastan could enjoy quality, innovative carpeting at an affordable price. Karastan was 15 years ahead of the competition when it came to this style of carpet manufacturing.
Karastan kept moving with the times without losing the durability and luxury of their original carpets. Today Karastan carpeting is as plush as ever and homeowners enjoy the natural spring of woven carpet under their feet each and every day.
