What Houzz contributors are saying:
Today braided rugs are made two different ways, named for their primary material: cloth or yarn.Cloth. Cloth braided rugs are often custom-made. Because they’re more labor-intensive, they cost more than yarn braided rugs. The process of making cloth braided rugs follows that of the early settlers. Strips of cloth — usually wool, cotton or a blend of the two — are sewn together and folded to conceal the raw edges of the fabric. Three of these strips are then braided together and stitched to other braids to create a rug. While both yarn and cloth braided rugs are durable, cloth braids are considered more resilient.
