DALTON, GA, September 27, 2007—Karastan fills stores with five new broadlooms that are top picks for fall. Included in the launch are two woven wools that charm floors with the allure of space-dyed yarns. Also making its debut is an ever-versatile, tufted loop along with two heavyweight cut-piles. It’s the perfect combination of looks that, in Karastan tradition, permeate interiors with character, warmth and style.

“We purposefully cover a broad range of styles when we create a group of carpets,” says Connie Berry, Director of Marketing for Karastan. “Our fall launch is especially versatile, giving retailers the ability to reach a large audience of consumers with colors, textures and fibers that speak to one’s personal space.”
Karastan’s woven introductions include:

  • ArdingtonArdington is a space-dyed, cut-and-loop ribbed texture that creates excitement. Karastan heightens the drama of this fun, yet versatile, offering by weaving it in eight, two-color combinations of tonal and contrasting hues. Use of 100% New Zealand wool lends softness, durability and lasting beauty to a composition that defies convention.

  • Tristan—A collaboration of color weaves its way across Tristan’s level-loop field. Casual in look and feel, Tristan tantalizes the eye with a trio of space-dyed color. It’s a look that brings the latest trends home with style and ease.  All this fashion comes with the exclusive features of New Zealand wool, an eco-friendly fiber that offers superior durability, stain resistance and longevity.
