Karastan SmartStrand the Smart Choice for Indianapolis Families

Published: October 20, 2011

It’s National Karastan Month! Which makes this a great time to share why Karastan’s unique SmartStrand® carpet is such a popular choice with families throughout Central Indiana.

Yes, it’s true that SmartStrand® carpets are crafted from a new generation of fibers made from DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer. And that 37 percent of this polymer comes from corn – an infinitely renewable resource. That certainly makes SmartStrand® an excellent choice for the environment. But what makes it so brilliant for busy families? Karastan’s earth-friendly SmartStrand® carpets are remarkably stain resistant, durable, and soft. They remain the easy-care alternative no matter the test—red wine, mustard, bleach, lovable but smelly pets, families who like to roughhouse.

A few more exciting facts about Karastan SmartStrand®:

  • It’s energy efficient: Production of Sorona® polymer requires 30 percent less energy than the production of an equal amount of nylon. This energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline saved for every seven square yards of carpet produced.
  • It’s easy to care for : SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer has built-in stain protection—not a topical treatment. So it will never wear off or diminish—even after years of repeated cleanings.
  • It brings long-lasting beauty to any home : SmartStrand® offers excellent colorfastness properties, which resist fading and are covered by Karastan’s ten-year Color Fast Warranty. Durability is backed by Karastan’s exclusive Lifetime Limited Manufacturing Defects Warranty.

SmartStrand® carpets combine beauty with sustainability. What a smart way to live. Learn more about what to consider when purchasing carpet from our online carpet buyer’s guide.
