Karastan Rugs, Karastan Carpets Cleaning and Repair in Los Angeles

We receive many Karastan carpets for cleaning and repair. Karastans are machine made rugs with wool pile and high quality dye. With good care and maintenance, they can last for generations. The company was established in 1926 in Atlanta, Georgia, and their rugs entered the market in 1928. The oldest Karastan rug we cleaned and repaired was bought in 1939 by a clients aunt. It was a big 12' x 19' rug, and like many other Karastan carpets, was damaged at the ends and fringes were coming off and the ends were unraveling.

A while ago, we received a Karastan rug of 8' 8" x 12'. This rug was water damaged and then left without being taken care off in storage for a long time. It was rotten with mildew. Our client liked this rug and wanted us to save it for her. In the first look, it did not look salvageable.

We removed all the rotten and damaged ares and down sized the rug. And then hand washed it. The result was a good looking like a brand new Karastan rug. Our client was very happy with our custom made rug.
