Top Quality Cleaning
Original and modern Karastan rugs are made from worsted wool. This is a natural fiber that can repel some liquids, and holds up very well to dirt and regular traffic.
Yet in order for it to stay at its best and avoid buildup of particles and debris in the root of its fibers - leading to damage in the foundation - it must be deep cleaned periodically.
