About Earth Rugs:                

In 1980 Ed Back saw plush pile jute rugs being sold in the marketplace in Bangladesh; they looked like antique rugs.  Within a year, he sold his first jute pile rug in the United States.  Soon Ed sold these antique reproduction rugs in big box stores across the USA.  Earth Rugs changes with the times by introducing the first jute braided rugs to independent retailers in 1996.  Now Earth Rugs specializes in colorful hand printed designs on jute braids.  American Designers license artwork with Earth Rugs today.  Earth Rugs remains unique with a powerful vision to sell the largest collection of earth friendly jute braided rugs, table accents, baskets and pet rugs!
