9×13 Karastan Chinese Medallion Area Rug #718
In a North Carolina mill during the 1920’s, Marshall Field & Co. created an exciting and innovative product – machine-made oriental design rugs of high quality at realistic prices. These elegant new rugs, almost impossible to distinguish from imported originals, were introduced by Wanamaker’s New York department store in 1928, and the Karastan brand was born. The Karastan ‘Wonder Rug’ wowed tens of thousands of visitors at two World’s Fairs. Consumers quickly learned that the Karastan name means quality, beauty, and durability.
Karastan’s design #718 has a buttery yellow field of color with a matching primary border and contrasting blue patterned borders flanking it. Accent colors include blue, orange, terra cotta, and gold, among others. The motifs that decorate the rug are inspired by Chinese designs, orbiting around the medallion in the center.
