History of Braided Rugs 

Braided rugs have a long history dating back to the colonial era in America. Early settlers used braided rugs as a way to recycle old clothing and textiles, and the technique was passed down through generations. The process of braiding rugs is simple, but time-consuming, and involves braiding strips of fabric together to create a thick, durable rug.

During the 18th and 19th centuries, braided rugs were a popular way to add a decorative touch to homes, as well as providing warmth and comfort. The rugs were often made from scraps of fabric, such as wool, cotton, and linen, and were often colorful and vibrant.

In the 20th century, braided rugs fell out of popularity, but in the 1970s, there was a resurgence of interest in traditional crafts and techniques, and braided rugs once again became popular. Today, braided rugs are still made by hand, using a variety of materials, including wool, cotton, and synthetic fibers. They are often used as accent rugs, or for decorative purposes, in homes, offices and commercial spaces.

Braided rugs are also an important part of the tradition of different cultures, and are still made by artisans in countries like Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan.

Braided rugs have been warming hearths and homes of Americans for over 200 years. With a little American ingenuity, the Colonists began sewing rags and scraps of wool into long strips. These strips were then hand braided and sewn into durable rugs for their simple homes. These colorful rugs have stood the test of time and are still an important design element  today.

TAPE BRAIDED or WOVEN CLOTH RUGS
Tape braided rugs are constructed by first weaving yarn into a flat woven cloth. This woven cloth is then folded and braided into durable wide braided styles. This adds strength to the yarn, making the rug stronger and more durable than a yarn braided rug.
