Made in America, made for you!
Braided rugs are classic Americana and never go out of style. The brave pioneers and early settlers of this great nation knew how to make the most of the limited resources they had. They didn’t just throw away the precious used textile fabrics they owned. Once their clothes or wagon covers were worn to the point of no repair, they would repurpose these items by tearing them into strips and braiding them into rugs. These early floor coverings were in fact life savers, keeping families warm through the long winters by blocking the cold winds in their drafty cabin floors. Not only did these braided rugs save lives, they also served to beautify homes with their spectacular multicolored designs. The settlers quickly learned that these rugs are not just beautiful they are extremely durable as well. The variegated patchwork patterns help to hide soil. In addition, these rugs have a secret weapon - they are reversible! After many years of use and once one side is completely used up, just flip it over and you have a whole new rug for many more years of enjoyment. By owning these rugs, you actually own a piece of our great country’s heritage.
At Capel, we take pride in sustainability and hope you enjoy using this beautiful rug made here in the USA.
