They have “a 37-year history of producing made-to-order, hand-crafted, extremely high quality carpets and area rugs. Inherently green and recyclable natural materials are employed by the artisans at Carousel’s northern Georgia mill. They produce a range of custom carpets and area rugs in wool, cotton, linen, and jute with a wide variety of patterns and textures.

Prairie Rugs

"The World's Finest Cotton Rugs." Heavy-wight, hand-made, washable cotton area rugs made from pre-consumer recycle rags acquired from textile mills in India, originally intended to make bedding. The rags are washed with a bio-degradable soap (no blech) then dyed using high quality low-impact organic dyes that are so safe, the residual dye water is used to irrigate vegetables and mango trees in the surrounding areas. The dyed strips are rinsed three times in separate tubs of fresh water to remove the residual dye and prevent color transfer, then dried in the sun. The colored rags are then woven by hand on manual looms. Made with heavy-duty materials to last for decades.
