In Colonial times floor coverings were a necessity, a means of covering
rough-hewn floorboards and blocking the harsh winter air from seeping inside.
The rugs of yesteryear were made of old and outgrown clothing, cut into strips,
then fashioned into long braided strands. These braids were then hand laced
together to create the appropriate size area rug.
Today, Thorndike Mills melds the techniques of yesteryear with modern day
technology. Using only the highest quality NEW cloth material or yarn-spun
fabric, Thorndike Mills creates authentic reproductions of Colonial Americana,
as well as designs to compliment today’s country décor with their original
design heirloom quality braided rugs.
