Urbane City Blocks
Outdoor Rug - Couristan 5748-0148
Showcasing a truly original trademark aesthetic, Couristans Urbane
Collection brings artistic flair to outdoor entertaining places and cozy indoor
spaces. Offering a refreshing take on traditional flatwoven rugs, the surface of
each Urbane design features a diagonal flatweave with a wide-ribbed effect.
Adding to this texture, the flatwoven background is enlivened with cut-pile
accents that form various motifs. From the beautiful floral print to the sassy
cheetah skin, the details in each pattern have a meticulous three-dimensional
quality which is achieved through a high-quality power-loomed construction.
Meant to be enjoyed both inside and outside the home, Urbane area rugs are woven
entirely of 100% fiber-enhanced Courtron polypropylene and are mold and mildew
resistant. Strengthened with a UV stabilizer, the rich colors will resist fading
typically caused by sun exposure and other harsh weather elements. Durable
enough to be displayed in the backyard, yet stylish enough to be used in
interior foyers, dining areas and dens, the Urbane Collection fuses modern art
influences with innovative weaving techniques to create an invigorating new look
that is full of personality and presence.

For over 75 years Couristan, Inc. has been a powerful name in the
area rug and broadloom industry. Owned by the Couri family for two
generations and operated today by brothers George G. Couri, Chairman and Ron J.
Couri, CEO and President, the company prides itself on having the most exquisite
handmade and power-loomed floor coverings available from anywhere around the
Founded in 1926 by brothers Basil J. Couri and George J. Couri, and
appropriately named "Couri Brothers," the company began its humble beginnings by
importing fine handmade area rugs from Persia. According to Ron Couri,
Couristan's CEO and President, importing area rugs from Persia was a
difficult task. "I remember listening to my father and uncle's travel stories.
First they took a ship to England, then another to the continent. Once in Europe
they took the Orient Express and then drove through the desert to Persia. They
finally arrived 32 days later. It was quite an adventure."
The first area rugs imported by the company were a few shipments of
Sparta Rugs from Smyrna. At the time, the company began affixing "Couristan"
trademark labels to the back of each and every rug it imported. This mark was
composed from the family's surname "Couri" and the frequently used suffix "stan",
referring to the region of small weaving villages in which the company imported
its rugs from. The company would quickly begin to broaden its horizons, as well
as its area rug offerings by importing rugs from India in 1927.
In the 1930's, Couristan began importing handmade hooked rugs from
China and braided rugs from Japan. At the time nearly 99 percent of the total
production of Japan's floor coverings were being exported to the United States.
According to Ron Couri, Couristan was regarded as one of the country's largest
importers of Japanese braided rugs from the 1930's to the 1960's. During that
time there wasn't much of a market for Oriental-design products in the United
States, but through Couristan's ingenuity and extensive design development, the
company was able to create a substantial marketplace for handmade Oriental
