The days of identifying your first Sunday suit or your Dad’s winter overcoat in the braided rug you walk on are fleeting. And certainly, most of today’s Moms and grandmothers don’t have the time to strip fabric and hand-braid it like their ancestors once did. But, rest-assured, Thorndike Mills braids its rugs with these vivid memories. Our high quality braided rugs are manufactured with the words “authentic” and “reproduction” in mind…plus, “possibilities.” We don’t confine ourselves to thinking back to Colonial times and manufacturing reproductions that only fit with Early American or Colonial décor. (That’s old school.) The many braided rug colors and styles we offer will enhance and complement many decors, from Craftsman, Country Cottage, Beach House, Traditional and eclectic decorating styles. Oh, the possibilities. Visit our gallery and see for yourself. That’s why we provide strict specifications to our cloth manufacturers—as well as our yarn suppliers, because we only want our braided rugs to be of the highest quality possible—so they fit in with any lifestyle, are durable for families (including man’s best friend, Fido), and still enhance almost any décor.
