)-- During the Sturbridge Yankee Workshop Summer Catalog Sale, all items made in the USA are on sale, in addition to featured pillows. As an added bonus for Sturbridge shoppers, each purchase of an American made Sturbridge exclusive 8’ x 11’ braided rug equates to a matching 2’ x 3’ rug for free. To take advantage of this great deal before it is gone, shop with Sturbridge on their website, www.sturbridgeyankee.com, or through their current summer catalog by July 17, 2014.
Sturbridge’s Heritage Braided rugs are made in New England with quality craftsmanship and durability in mind. Polypropylene rugs are popular for their indoor/outdoor capabilities, suitable for a porch or living room. Durable nylon threads keep the rugs intact in fair or foul weather.
There are two types of braided rugs: tubular and flat. Tubular braids are not true braids, as the ratio of 60% tube filler to only 40% surface yarn makes for a lower quality rug. Flat braids, also known as true braids, are formed around two legs of yarn with the ratio being 70% surface yarn to 30% filler.
Sturbridge’s Heritage Braided Rugs are crafted with special attention to softness, longevity and flexibility in mind. Made with a knit cushion tube within the braid, Heritage Braided Rugs give a soft under foot feel, allow for quicker drying, and flexibility without distortion. Sturbridge uses high quality nylon monofilament thread to stitch their Heritage Braided Rugs, increasing the durability of the braids.
From now until July 17, 2014, Sturbridge customers who purchase an 8’ x 11’ Heritage Braided Rug in a color of their choice will receive a matching 2’ x 3’ rug for free. Sturbridge is proud of their American roots, as indicated by their wide range of American made items, and is celebrating all things Americana in their current summer catalog sale, going on now.
