Mohawk Revives American Rug Craftsman Name

Sugar Valley, GA, Jan. 2, 2013 -- Mohawk Home is reintroducing a name from its past: American Rug Craftsmen.

“This is a change from American Rug Craftsmen brand, which Mohawk absorbed in 1993,” said Brandon Culpepper, vice president of specialty sales for Mohawk, in a press release.

“There is a void in the marketplace, and we see American Rug Craftsmen filling that void as the consumer landscape continues to change. Our research indicates a growing demand for American-made goods and American customer service—which is exactly what American Rug Craftsmen is all about.”

American Rug Craftsmen will introduce the first woven area rugs made from SmartStrand Triexta fiber.
