Tribal Beauty: Etowah Rug
Perfection in its imperfections, our hand-crafted Etowah rug draws its beauty from its natural fiber content and its artisan-woven construction.
This traditional flat weave rug combines natural jute and cotton, and features details done in hand twisted jute yarns for irregular color distribution. Further emphasizing its beauty, the warp yarns are hand tied and finished as fringe.
Available sizes include: 5′ x 7’, 8′ x 10’, and 9′ x 12′
Some interesting fun-facts about this rug’s “Etowah” name:
Etowah is a Muskogee (American Indian, Muscogee/Creek Nation) word derived from “italwa,” meaning “town” “people” and/or “tribe.” Seven U.S. states – Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia – are each home to towns named Etowah. Additionally, rising northwest of Dahlonega, Ga., is the 164-mile long Etowah River, and its north shore (Bartow County, Ga.) is where the historic archaeological site Etowah Indian Mounds reside.
