The Colonial Mills Story
Colonial Mills brings innovation to braid. Through quality, American craftsmanship and adaptable design, we are creating the next generation of braided home fashions. We see braid as a method of construction, not a style. It is this thinking that allows us to combine the traditional and contemporary. Our approach reflects people's eclectic sense of personal style. From the boldly modern to the classically rustic, we're proudly made to order here in the USA.
Braided rugs from Colonial Mills provide a refreshing departure from traditional area rugs. Although our braided rugs are now machine-braided and sewn by our skilled manufacturing team using machines, the designs are inspired by old-fashioned hand-made rug styles. This popular brand bridges the gap between casual and refined, and is perfect for a trendy, shabby-chic design. The most notable variations in Colonial Mills rugs are the shapes. Many of the company's collections are comprised of oval-shaped rugs, a style unique to braided rugs. Oval braided rugs will make casual statement in any room.
Other collections of round, braided rugs include variegated colors and stripes. Many of the brand's rugs are also available in runner styles, including a runner with rounded edges. In addition to round rugs, Colonial Mills also offers more traditional, rectangular rugs. These rugs are available in solids, stripes, heathers, and contour patterns.
Colonial Mills rugs are made from a fine assortment of materials. Many of these rugs are made from polypropylene, which is a durable, stain resistant and easy to maintain synthetic fabric. Other materials include high quality wool and wool blends, nylon, and the reclaimed Sunbrella yarn, which is perfect for indoor and outdoor use. The unique braided rugs from Colonial Mills gives any room a comfortable, lived-in feel. The wide variety of shapes and colors available means there is a braided rug for every design. Families in particular will love the durability and style of these rugs.
Along with our signature braided rugs, Colonial Mills offers a diverse range of braided décor, including baskets, hampers, poufs, stair treads and more.
Visiting Colonial Mills
Every product that Colonial Mills offers is handcrafted and made-to-order at their factory in Rumford, Rhode Island. Family owned and operated since 1977, they have many amazing, long-standing employees. The longest of whom has been with them since they opened their doors over forty years ago! At Colonial Mills, we love dogs, and whoever comes to visit on location is greeted by their four-legged friend, Pam.
Colonial Mills also has an outlet store featuring great deals on their American made braided products. This store is expected to re-open later in 2022.
