Back in Colonial America, braided rugs were commonly made from leftover scraps of fabric. Not wanting to waste cloth, they braided these scraps together and turned them into floor coverings. As well as looking beautiful, they were also great for insulation during the cold winter months. Braided rugs were traditionally thick and often colorful, and were an affordable and creative way to brighten up your home. Braided rugs have stood the test of time, and they are still very popular today. From small round rugs or doormats to runners or area rugs, these days, braided rugs are available in many shapes and sizes. And many braided rugs are reversible making them very versatile. From a tribal style or rustic charm to a contemporary nomadic design or a minimalist look, braided rugs will fit into many different styles of homes.
How to maintain braided rugs?
If you are wondering how to maintain braided rugs, how you care for them will depend on what they are made out of. Some braided rugs may be able to be deep cleaned with carpet foam, others can be vacuumed using a non-rotating brush vacuum or if they are small enough you can just shake them out. Given the design of braided rugs, dirt and dust tend to collect between the threads. You need to be careful when cleaning braided rugs that you avoid snagging threads where possible. It can also be a good idea to rotate your braided rug regularly so that one side doesn’t wear out more quickly than the other one. And if it’s reversible you can turn it over too. As with all rugs, if you spill something on it, you should deal with it straight away to try to avoid any permanent staining.
To extend the life of your braided rug and to protect it from slipping or buckling, it is a great idea to use a rug underlay, especially if your rug is in a high traffic area. At Miss Amara, we sell a reversible rug underlay that is suitable to use over tiled or wood floors. When your rug underlay arrives, you’ll simply need to cut it to size with a pair of scissors and then put it on the floor and roll out your rug over the top.
Where can I buy cheap braided rugs?
Braided rugs are very affordable, and being an online business without all the expensive overheads of showrooms and retail outlets, Miss Amara can keep the prices of braided rugs down even further. At Miss Amara, we have a range of beautifully constructed, high-quality braided rugs to choose from. If you are after something unique, many of our braided rugs have been designed in-house and are exclusive to the Miss Amara collection. Handcrafted using a unique combination of traditional rug-making techniques, they display the exquisite craftsmanship of our skilled artisans.
Our braided rugs are made out of a variety of different materials including eco-friendly PET fibers, soft felted wool backed with knotted cotton, natural jute fibers, luxurious wool and polyester blend, jute and natural cotton blend, and more. From tribal, lattice, or striped, Miss Amara’s decorative braided rugs come in several patterns, or you can choose one with no pattern if you prefer. We also have a wide color selection so whether you like neutral colors such as beige, brown, and grey rugs or the more colorful red, yellow, multi-colored, or pink rugs, you’re sure to find a braided rug in a color that you’ll love, and every rug will have their own unique tones and color variations. From our stunning wool braided rugs that are thick and spongy to walk on and can be made to order in custom sizes, to our traditional oval jute rug intricately braided and stitched by hand, we have braided rugs to suit everyone’s tastes. Made from renewable resources and ethically produced, we also sell a range of eco-friendly hand-braided round jute rugs. Round braided rugs can be a vibrant addition to a kid’s bedroom or playroom, and they are a great way of breaking up boxy spaces and can be used in smaller rooms that can’t comfortably fit a standard rectangular rug.
With so many braided rugs to choose from, you may be finding it hard to find the best one for you. At Miss Amara, we aim to make the selection process as easy as possible. When you browse through our collection of braided rugs online, you’ll notice there is a ‘See this in my room’ button under each rug. Using this handy feature, you can upload an actual photo of the room you are intending to put the rug in and we’ll superimpose a picture of the rug you have selected onto the photo. You can then move it around to different positions to see how it will look. If you don’t have a photo of your room on hand, we have some generic room images on our website including a kid’s room, modern study, an open living room, and more that you can use to help you visualize what the rug might look like in a room. Another useful tool on our site is our virtual rug stylist. Based on your answers to a few questions about your style, budget, and purpose for the rug, we can produce a list of search results of rugs that you might be interested in.
In addition to these two features, we also provide free styling advice from our team of professional stylists. With backgrounds in interior, styling, and architecture, they can help you find a braided rug that will suit your needs and complement your décor. You can contact our interior professionals via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or if it’s during business hours through the chat box (that’s on the bottom right of the screen). Simply send us some photos of your room and let us know your requirements and general taste preferences. Our stylists will then curate a personal rug selection put together just for you. Our styling services are free, and you will be under no obligation to buy. At Miss Amara, we are committed to making your rug purchasing experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. We’re hoping you’ll love our braided rugs as much as we do, but once your order arrives if the rug doesn’t meet your needs for any reason, we have a risk-free returns policy (excluding underlays, custom size orders, or made to order rugs). We know that buying a rug can be a big commitment, so we want to make sure you are happy with your purchase.
