Clean lined geometrics, painterly abstracts and mid-century modern designs make upthe fashion forward designs in the Artois collection. An exciting play of color and pattern embrace today’s expressive style and takes this collection in modern directions.

2-ply nylon yarn to impart a soft hand and dense pile that is durable and easy to clean. Specially twisted and space-dyed yarn gives each rug a multi-hued “stria” reminiscent of fine hand-woven rugs. 10-12 colors in each pattern provide up to 36 shade variations
to create vivid and lively decorating solutions.
The Rugs of Karastan
The people of Karastan make our rugs exceptional. In the 1920s, we began
with the dream of producing machine-made oriental rugs that recreate
the detailed craftsmanship of imported hand-woven rugs. The development
of the Axminster loom, which is still in use today, allowed the creation
of machine-made rugs that were nearly impossible to distinguish from
handmade. But rug manufacturing requires the hands-on skills and
artistry of rug craftsmen, too. Our team of rug makers ensures our
standards of both beauty and quality. Some of our craftsmen have been a
part of the Karastan family for decades. Throughout this catalog we'll
introduce you to a few of the faces of Karastan, the people who embody
the spirit of the Karastan legacy. They're the individuals who have made
the Karastan name synonymous with quality, beauty and durability.
