9×13 Karastan Kirman 717 Area Rug
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 rugs are the only machine-made rugs our Gallery accepts because the brand prides itself on maintaining high-quality standards in their materials and production. This particular Karastan rug is their Model 717, which features a vibrant array of colors including berry pink, aqua blue, royal blue, among others displayed in an ornate diamond pattern.
