About Karastan Carpet

Karastan Carpet

Karastan makes it easier and more fashionable to live green with a new generation of carpet fibers made from corn-based polymers.  This polymer is called DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer and it is as good for the environment as it is for you.  It is also an important ingredient in Karastan's SmartStrand® - a remarkabley stain resistant, durable, soft, beautiful, long lasting and earth friendly carpet fiber. These smart attributes are even more brilliant when you consider that 37% of the Sorona® polymer comes from renewable resources instead of the more limited petroleum based ingredients in most other carpets.
 
Styled for Today
By utilizing renewable ingredients that can be infinitely replaced - like corn - Karastan is able to create beautiful carpets, while preserving the earth's nonrenewable resources for future generations.
