Simpatico Collection from Karastan: A Modern and Pleasant Marriage of SmartStrand and Wool

DALTON, Ga., June 6, 2018—Karastan’s new collection, Simpatico, is inspired by the successful launch of the company’s Kismet Collection. Like Kismet, Simpatico displays the compatibility of beautiful wool and one of the most innovative fibers to come along in decades: SmartStrand Silk™.

“Simpatico is an extension of the success we have seen with our Kismet Collection,” said Erika Banks, product director at Karastan. “This marriage of New Zealand wool and our SmartStrand Silk allows for superior durability and a beautiful finished hand. Available in more than 40 stocking sizes, Simpatico rugs also can be made in custom sizes. This wide range of sizes and options makes it easy to find a size to fit in any room.” 

Woven on Van de Wiele looms in the USA, Simpatico features modern transitional patterns that pair together well and are set in a palette of natural and neutral colors.  

Simpatico offers the inherent durability, sustainability and performance attributes of both wool and SmartStrand to create rugs that are soft, long-lasting and contribute to a healthier home and planet.
