I met native Kentuckian, Ann Brown, at NAILE in 1995. Shortly thereafter, we became interested Karakul braided rugs. This is a method we first learned from Mary Jane Coble of Dexter, Michigan, and have since perfected into a business.

Basically, Karakul roving is tightly braided into long ropes, then the braids are felted tightly in the washing machine and dried in the dryer. The braids are then securely and artfully sew together into beautiful, strong, durable rugs. While most of our rugs are made from the wondrous natural colors found in our sheep, we do dye and overdye to match wallpaper and color paint chips for custom orders.
