In 1928, history was made as American retailer and textile manufacturer Marshall Field built a loom capable of recreating the detailed craftsmanship and luxurious look of a hand-woven rug. Introduced by Wanamaker’s New York department store, these high quality, elegant, machine-made rugs were almost impossible to distinguish from imported originals and were dubbed “Mystery Rugs” by the press. Karastan shared the “mystery” of these rugs with the public during the 1933-34 World’s Fair in Chicago when they invited visitors to walk on a specially created large version of their Kirman pattern. After more than 5 million people left their footprints, spills and ground-in food stains all over the rug, Karastan cleaned half the rug and hung it as a display to demonstrate how well the rugs recover. After repeating this demonstration for a second time at the New York World’s Trade Fair of 1939-40, Karastan rugs became known as “The Wonder Rugs of America”. In 1948, Karastan made history again with its Kara-Loc® method of weaving. This technique introduced an explosion of fashion innovations at least 15 years ahead of the rest of the industry, bringing high-styled, quality carpets to the average consumer.
