Southwest Looms is a boutique rug manufacturer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. As the licensee for Pendleton Woolen Mills, we have been interpreting their famous trade blankets into a collection of hand-knotted and hand-tufted rugs for over a decade.
The Dreamcatcher Collection is our homage to the weavers of the Navajo. These hand-woven rugs are recognized as the most authentic Navajo reproductions available, incorporating whip-stitched edges, lazy lines, and corner tassels.
New in January, the Indigo Collection expands our flat weave offering with an array of rugs in a cool palette of blue and white inspired by rivers, lakes and shore line.
New in October, the Santa Fe Collection offers lodge style with a modern twist. Luxury under your feet, Santa Fe is 100 knot Tibetan weave, high quality New Zealand wool and modern palettes and designs.
Our Naturals Collection, hand-woven in undyed wool, has found an audience for those that prefer a cleaner, mountain- modern aesthetic. This group of tonal tan, cream and brown hues works nicely in transitional environments.
Our nationally recognized Arts & Crafts Collection offers over 20 designs that honor both the British Arts & Crafts movement of the late 1800s and later Mission and American Prairie Style in the U.S.
All of our collections can be seen at The Persian Carpet, our headquarters in Chapel Hill. For over 40 years, we have been serving the Triangle with the best selection of Oriental rugs sourced world-wide.
