Fort Lee, NJ – November 17, 2014 – Couristan, Inc., a leading manufacturer of fine, quality area rugs, residential broadloom and custom contract/hospitality carpeting, is proud to introduce its newest in merchandising, the Purity® Display Unit.

The Purity® brand is Couristan’s residential broadloom line consisting of an assortment of 34 eco-friendly carpeting styles and is dedicated to bringing an ecological flooring solution of pure, natural materials to floor coverings. The brand’s products are broken down into three Green Designations: Purity® Plus, which uses pure natural materials in all aspects of the carpet, Purity® Select, which features pure, natural materials in the surface pile of the carpeting and Purity® Basics, which is made of natural materials but wool may be dyed and some synthetic materials may be used for the backing.


The new display unit features likatre melamine with clean, fresh details throughout its fully-customizable 30-pin frame. Measuring just over 4’ high, 6’ wide and nearly 2’ deep, it is intended to act as a silent salesperson, instantly communicating the superior standards that have been synonymous with Couristan for over 88-years.
