About 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.
