SmartStrand Fashionable

Good for the environment...Great for You!

Introducing SmartStrand® featuring DuPont Sorona® renewable sourced polymer. A new generation of carpet innovation and technology.

Karastan makes it easier and more fashionable to live green with a new generation of carpet fibers made from corn based polymers.

This polymer is called DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer and it is as good for the environment as it is for you. It is also an important ingredient in Karastan's SmartStrand® - a remarkably stain resistant, durable, soft, beautiful, long lasting and earth friendly carpet fiber. These smart attributes are even more brilliant when you consider that 37% of the Sorona® polymer comes from renewable resources instead of the more limited petroleum based ingredients in most other carpets.

My favorite Egg Salad sandwich #recipe
You either love an egg salad sandwich, or you hate it. I happen to enjoy them, especially in the summer when my chickens are laying eggs like crazy. Sandwiches are the perfect way to use up all of those excess eggs!
