A Look at Traditional Weaving Methods

Posted in Designers Gallery

One of the greatest pleasures of working at Colony Rug is working with companies that produce products that represent fine craftsmanship. Langhorne Carpet Company is one of these businesses. Langhorne Carpet Company was established in 1930 and has been making fine woven carpets ever since. In fact, the company still uses much of the same machinery they used back during the industrial revolution. Langhorne Carpets is one of the few companies that still product true woven carpets and these carpets are well sought after.

Carpets from this legendary company can be found in many well known buildings including Boston’s Old State House, Tavern on the Green in NYC and The Virginia Statehouse. They also grace the floors of many homes as well.

This video gives you a true appreciation for the work that goes into creating a quality woven carpet. The machinery is amazing and the level of detail and care necessary to produce the carpets is staggering. Take a look and see for yourself.
