The Cherokee had a sacred planting. They would plant squash, corn and beans in the same plot. The beans would grow and climb the corn stalk, the squash leaves would create shade and prevent weeds. This planting was called "The Three Sisters."
These rugs are made from exclusive premium "EnduraStran" nylon. The fibers are fade resistant, antimicrobial and commercial grade tested for heavy traffic use. The rugs are made from premium quality continuous filament Nylon. EnduraStran construction means the rugs will not wear out or ugly out like Polypropylene. Two soil lifting properties are added to the yarn during the manufacturing process which helps the yarn shed soil. A synthetic fluoropolymer is added to the yarn system which traditionally is used on non-stick coating for pans and other cookware. This means that the yarn is difficult to wet making cleaning the rugs an easy task. Simply clean the rugs with hot water which eliminates the needs for potentially harmful chemicals.
A portion of the sales from this collection goes to the New Echota Historic site in Northwest Georgia. This site was the capital of the Cherokee Nation.
