In recent years, not only has Kalaty adopted a more modern approach to product design but also the company has implemented a new corporate brand image evident in its newly remodeled website and in the clean graphics direction of its new 440-page comprehensive Kalaty catalog, which was mailed to dealers in the late winter 2017.

Karastan's Kismet Collection Taps the Performance Qualities of both Wool and Smartstrand Silk

Karastan Kismet Collection Oracle Seaglass

Karastan combines soft New Zealand wool and durable SmartStrand Silk
to create Kismet Collection’s 
Oracle Seaglass, a stunning design of allure and fashion.

DALTON, GA — The Kismet Collection by Karastan brings together in one beautiful construction Karastan’s historical love of producing quality wool rugs with one of the most innovative fibers to come along in decades: SmartStrand Silk.

“Kismet is defined as something significant happening that comes about by fate,” said Tracy Pruitt, vice president of design, Karastan. “So perhaps it is fate, or kismet, that Karastan, which has been revolutionizing the rug and carpet industry since the 1920s, would think to combine wool and SmartStrand Silk in one incredible collection. Together they achieve a remarkable product that optimizes the quality of each: the sophisticated matte finish of New Zealand wool is contrasted with the silky sheen of SmartStrand creating a riot of textures, hand-feel and surface variation.”

Patterns in the Kismet Collection are also based on the old and the new. Archival patterns, reinvented in new and colorful ways, share the stage with styles that are completely abstract and textural. All of the rugs are realized in a range of neutrals, grays and cream with accents of steel blue, pale wheat and aqua.

Nepali Carpet Weaving as Sustainable Alternative to Migrant Labor

At a press conference held on June 1, 2017 in Kathmandu, Nepal, fair trade organization Label STEP and Jan Kath, renowned designer of hand-knotted carpets, launched a campaign to promote the benefits of carpet production as a key industry in Nepal and a critically important employer for the developing country’s people. The campaign centers on an eye-opening yet inspiring music video entitled “Nine Million Stars” – the number of stars in the sky according to Nepali folklore.

“Label STEP and Jan Kath call on Nepal’s industries and government to increase their efforts to present a more sustainable future for the country’s economy and more attractive prospects for Nepal’s workers,” said Reto Aschwanden, Managing Director of Label STEP, an NGO that has been working to ensure fair trade practices in the carpet industry since 1995. “We hope that our campaign will also encourage Nepali workers to build their careers and their lives at home rather than choosing to work at often dangerous and disruptive jobs abroad.”
