• Feeling like it’s just not pulling together or feeling cozy enough for the coming fall and winter seasons? Mix comfortable leather chairs with traditional primitive décor on a gorgeous, colorful braided rug in front of a fireplace or in a cozy conversation corner.

• Want to make a family and guests feel like there’s no place they would rather be than in the warm, welcoming spaces you have created? Choose from our sparkling selection of colors to get a new look and exactly the feel you want.

• Looking for a rug to pull together an outdoor space or an indoor space where it may be exposed to dampness? Don’t compromise beauty for durability. Our ultra-durable braided rugs come in a wide variety of colors and sizes and you’ll be amazed at how easy they are to clean.

To make the perfect braided rug you have to start with the perfect braid.

hen Homespice owner, Junior Gupta, wanted to learn how to make the best braided rugs possible, he sought help from a NASA scientist, Dr. Elsheikh, who had worked with NASA on the Mission to Mars Program using braiding technology to make a lighter, stronger spacecraft. “To make the perfect braided rug you have to start with the perfect braid,” said Dr. Elsheikh as he taught the company how to make tight, long-lasting braids to ensure top quality rugs. That quality persists as each new rug is designed, developed and created.

Homespice rugs come in a glorious and vibrant mix of colors and are divided into 4 basic types or brands made of 4 different materials for different uses – Cotton, Jute, Wool and Ultra-durable (Olefin). All provide an unmatched quality, interesting designs, impeccable craftsmanship and durability. They can be used for casual or more formal and elegant looks depending upon the furniture and accents that are used with them.

Cotton Braided Rugs provide color, beauty and versatility and can last a lifetime. They are perfect for indoor spaces in the living room, dining room and bedrooms where they create interest and warmth. Imagine the soft blues, greens and tan mixtures of the Baja Blue, and the Seascape, or the turquoise and blue-grey mixture of the Smugglers’ Cove sitting with your natural wooden chest, a comfortable wooden rocking chair and a small distressed wooden painted table which has your favorite carved sailing boat on it. You can almost smell the salt and hear the waves crashing on the shore. Cotton braided rugs come in over 25 different color blends and as many as 20 different sizes.

Jute Braided Rugs are soft, durable and affordable. Made of natural fibers, they are particularly desirable where an eco-friendly environment is important. They can be used indoors or out but, as with any natural fiber, they should not be placed in areas where they will become wet or damp. There is nothing that says warmth and coziness more than the Harvest, Timber Trail or Kingston rugs with their varying combinations of rich reds, golden wheat tones, soft greens and rich browns. These braided rugs glow in a setting with a rich brown dining set and a distressed wooden sideboard. In complete contrast, a completely new look is created when they are combined with elegant and comfortable warm, cream leather, comfortable seating chairs with woven seats and backs and light-colored cushions. As our most economical rug, jute braided rugs are available in 41 different color combinations and up to 28 different sizes.

Wool Braided Rugs are the true traditional braided rug and are loved for their softness and comfort. Homespice wool rugs are very high quality, durable and are known to withstand a New England winter. Water dropped on the rugs will bead on the surface and can be easily wiped away. They are most suitable for dry, indoor places – in bedrooms, dens, living rooms, and libraries or offices. Wool braided rugs are available in 7 different color blends and up to 20 different sizes.

Ultra-Durable Rugs are in a class by themselves. These are our only synthetic rugs and are built for indoor or outdoor uses and to last for many years. They are stain-resistant, sun resistant, water, wine and ketchup resistant, and easy to clean – just hose them down. Watch our youtube video at watch?v=xNJEbEZBBNM or just Google Homespice ultra-durable rugs to watch how easily red wine, ketchup and sticky balsamic vinegar can be quickly washed out to leave absolutely no stain. These rugs are useful in the hallway where wet, dirty shoes and boots come into the house, in the bathroom where it can be damp after baths and showers, by the poolside, in the kids bedrooms, under the dining room table or in the kitchen where food definitely gets spilled or even just in the living room where you’re looking to add beauty. These soft and comfortable rugs are amazing! You can get any look you are wanting with these ultra-durable, ultra practical braided rugs.

Which of the styles of braided rugs you choose depends on a combination of placement of the rug, color choices available, economics, and the particular preference you have for one material and new look over another. Call us at 770-934-4224 if you’d like to talk with us about which of our rugs would be best for your needs. We’d love to help you make the right decision.


I fully immerse myself in each rug that I create. I personally select each color that goes into every single braid until I feel satisfied with the whole piece. The artist in me loves seeing the colors on my hands for days after each rug is finished.
