FRIENDSWOOD, TEXAS (May 1, 2012) – Flooring Source, a premier flooring retailer in the south Houston and Galveston County, Texas, area is proud to have been chosen an official dealer of Karastan quality rugs and carpets. Flooring Source is one of only eight flooring retailers in the Houston area to be approved as a Karastan dealer.

Karastan began in North Carolina in 1928, when retailer and textile manufacturer Marshall Field created a loom capable of recreating the detailed craftsmanship of a hand-woven rug. Since that time, the Karastan name has been synonymous with elegant machine-made rugs. In the 1930s, Karastan brought the same level of skill and craftsmanship to the manufacture of broadloom carpets, and continues to be known for their quality floor coverings. Karastan SmartStrand® carpets are crafted of a new generation of fibers made from DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer. Karastan’s woven wool products, woven on their energy-efficient Axminster looms, last longer than tufted carpets, making their wool products overall more environmentally friendly than traditional carpet products.

Flooring Source is a family-owned and operated business located in Friendswood, Texas, offering a comprehensive line of carpet, hardwood, laminate, ceramic tile, and laminate. They also carry luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring, as well as a wide selection of granite for countertops and backsplashes. Flooring Source is an exclusive Mohawk® Color Center Dealer, and carries other popular lines like Shaw, Dixie Home, Armstrong, Mannington, Bruce, Pinnacle, and Tarkett. All lines of carpet, hardwood, and tile are on display at the Flooring Source Showroom located in Friendswood, Texas.
