The rug chenille that
is used for these soft pile rugs is a byproduct of a weaving mill. The selvedges

Fabric and Bias Fabric Rugs
Fabric rugs are made
from cotton or a cotton/polyester blend.
Cotton "42-Twist" rugs are woven with a cord created by combining between 30 and 50 strands of cotton and other yarns. The color changes can be very subtle or very dramatic. Yarns and textures can be introduced to draw in other elements of a room. The finished rug is soft and easy to care for, and very appealing.
Denim and Corduroy Rugs
Denim rugs are made from recycled blue jeans. Corduroy rugs are cut from recycled clothing. Strips are cut from skirts or the legs of pants, blended into colorways, and sewn together to make strips for weaving. The color changes in the corduroy rugs can be very subtle, and a moderate range of colors is available. Construction, however, is very time-intensive.
Wool "Worm" and Yarn Rugs
Wool "worm" rugs are made from selvedge trimmings from Pendleton wool fabric. They have been fulled at the factory, then trimmed from the material. They make cushiony, warm throw rugs, but come in an unpredictable
assortment of colors. At the present time, availability is limited to the stock
on hand and no additional colors are offered. They should be hand-washed after use.
Sock Loop Rugs
popular handwoven rug we make is the sock loop design.
