Since 1928, Karastan have been manufacturing beautiful area rugs in a huge range of styles and colors. Karastan originally reproduced Persian and oriental style rugs and created a loom which allowed the pile to show through the back of the rug thus mimicking the hand-woven oriental originals. Today, Karastan have extended their range to include a variety of styles and designs as well as broadloom carpet.

The Karastan name has endured with beautiful quality rugs that stand the test of time. To test their durability, back in 1933 at the Worlds Fair, Karastan put one of their rugs on display and allowed the public to walk all over it. After more than 5 million people walked over the rug, half of it was cleaned. According to Karastan, the rug still exists with half still showing the stains left by millions of feet and the other half returned to its former glory.

Genuine oriental and Persian rugs are a wonderful investment but the time and effort that goes into their creation is reflected in the price and for many is well out of their price range. Karastan Rugs are the perfect alternative that will allow you to create the same effect as a genuine rug but at a fraction of the cost.

The Karastan rug mill utilizes chemically stable dyes and high quality worsted wool from New Zealand which gives the rugs their lasting quality. Karastan rugs are custom made to look like traditional antique Persian carpets and their prices are competitive.

Simply remember a few basic rules to keep your Karastan rug looking pristine:

  • Vacuum daily in high traffic areas and less often in areas where there is less traffic.
  • Clean spills immediately with water and clear soap using a non-pigmented cloth to absorb any fluid.
  • Use flat plastic discs under heavy furniture to prevent indentations into the rug, which may sever the fibers.
