– Welcome To Comfort –

Karastan’s legacy of enduring quality and stylish sophistication began almost a century ago. Today, every Karastan carpet and area rug is still a finely crafted work of art— and new innovation also makes Karastan floors softer and more luxurious than ever. Available in a variety of fiber types, all Karastan premium soft carpets offer specific inherent advantages to accommodate your discerning standards and personal lifestyle. Whether you prefer highly durable and beautiful nylon, easy-to-care-for and worry-free SmartStrand or the rich, deep luster of natural wool, you’ll find Karastan makes the absolute softest—and finest— carpets available.

Over the past several years, many manufacturers have focused on creating vacuums with extremely high suction. These vacuums perform excellently on low-pile carpets and hard surface flooring, but most do not work well on thicker, high-pile carpets, like Karastan’s softest offerings. So your current vacuum may not be the right match for your fabulous new soft Karastan carpet. A quality carpet deserves a quality vacuum. Many exceptional vacuums are available, but it’s important to note that one size does not fit all.

Selecting the Right Vacuum

If you are selecting a new vacuum, and you’ll be using it on Karastan’s premium soft, high-pile, wool or wool-blend carpets, look for these features:

Soft Bristle Brush Roll - Vacuums with stiff brush roll bristles can damage carpet fibers.

Lightweight Design - Lightweight vacuums are easier to maneuver on soft carpeting.

Efficient Airflow - Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction.

Large Wheels - A vacuum with large wheels is easier to move across soft carpeting.

The Soniclean SFC-7000 Soft Carpet upright vacuum cleaner is specifically designed to clean and maintain Karastan woven carpet styles. For more information on the Soniclean Soft Carpet vacuum, visit www.sonicleanusa.com or speak with your Karastan carpet retailer.


As well, the ability to disengage the brush for “suction-only” cleaning when needed is ideal. This is especially important on all-loop-pile wool products, as using brushes on the face of an all-loop-pile wool carpet may cause fuzzing of the wool fibers.

If you’d like more specifics on which vacuum you should purchase, Karastan has conducted in-depth vacuum testing and noted the feedback from other soft carpet customers to create an updated list of recommended vacuums.

As a Karastan customer, you are important to us and we value your feedback. Please share your vacuum experiences with us; you’re also welcome to offer advice for other premium soft carpet customers.

Vacuum Buyer's Guide

Proper care and maintenance of your new soft carpets will ensure that they stay beautiful longer, and frequent vacuuming is an essential part of carpet care. Karastan has created a Vacuum Buyer’s Guide to simplify the vacuum selection process.

Karastan has compiled vacuum recommendations based on the Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval, thorough internal testing and feedback from our customers. For specific information pertaining to vacuum models, please contact the manufacturer directly.
