Our History With American Dakota Rugs
“I actually got into the rug game by working at American Dakota. I got an internship there in high school, when American Dakota was just getting started. I worked one-on-one with the CEO as I did web design, graphic design, video marketing, and I even designed a rug. It was a really awesome experience and I’m glad that I’ve been able to maintain my professional relationship with American Dakota. They’re a really great smaller company, surrounded by the textile giants of Northwest Georgia. They do a great job of personifying the southwest style that is is so prevalent in their area rugs. They are also heavily involved in charitable giving, especially concerning the well-being and protection of the Native American people and their sacred lands. I feel honored to be able to carry their products because they are a company that holds so true to their values and honors the artists and designers that influenced their work.
American Dakota also will collaborate with other designers and artists. For instance, their rugs Rectangle, Red & Black, Moon Mask, and Raven were all part of a collaboration with wood sculpting artist Rande Cook.” – Connor Butterworth, Southwestern Rugs Depot, Owner
American Dakota rugs are made from high-quality nylon. Nylon is becoming more and more popular for rugs made in the US. That is because nylon is extremely durable. It is also great at preventing stains and hiding dirt. Nylon is also mildew and flame-resistance. To learn more about nylon, go here.
