Our rugs are unique and one-of-a-kind!

Our rugs are woven by experienced weavers with love and care, on an antique loom in charming, historic Nazareth, Pennsylvania.  The warp is 100% cotton. The weft or filler fabric, may be cotton or cotton/poly blends, some new and some recycled.  The rugs are woven by weavers with latex allergies, so they are created in a latex safe environment. They have no latex backing and are reversible. The washing and care of these rugs is easy. Washer and dryer safe. Line drying will give longer life to the fringes. These rugs are terrific for people with dust allergies, latex allergies, high traffic areas, in front of your favorite chair to protect the carpet, and are great in the car, on the porch or in the basement too! They are a favorite in cabins, and camping - inside and outside the tent, as a portable "time-out mat". rolled up as a draft dodger in front of the door and just about anywhere at all!
