Links to industry information and supportive resources.

  • The Carpet & Rug Institute: Whether you are a homeowner, architect, or facility manager, making the right flooring decisions starts with having the facts. That’s where The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) comes in. Our purpose is to provide science-based information about carpet and rugs – from health benefits to improved air quality to care and cleaning.

  • Classic Rug Collection Inc.: Commentary by the Owner: “In 1999, I started Classic Rug Collection, Inc. I used the word “collection” because I envisaged rugs made in many different styles and techniques. Drawing upon my interest in historical sources and using my research skills, I have designed rugs based on American Primitive designs, the Gee’s Bend Quilt patterns, Art Deco motifs, and classic Eastern geometrics.”

  • Endless Knot Rugs: Founded in 1978, Endless Knot is a San Francisco Bay Area importer, national distributor, and designer of handcrafted Tibetan carpets made in Nepal.

  • Helios Carpet: We’ve been weaving wool carpets for over 20 years. Wool has always been our fiber of choice because it boasts extraordinary natural advantages that cannot be found in any other fiber. All of our carpets are manufactured in the U.S.A. and are primarily woven—an environmentally friendly technique that enhances the strength of the wool fiber while providing endless variations of pattern and texture.

  • Hokanson: Hokanson is the worldwide recognized leader in the designing and manufacturing of custom made rugs and carpets. Hokanson was established in 1987 by Larry Hokanson of Houston Texas. Hokanson quickly rose to the premier position in the custom rug industry and has maintained that position ever since.
