PAWTUCKET, R.I. — A new collection of weatherproof, Cablelock-branded braided rugs is being developed through a recent partnership between CMI (Colonial Mills Inc.) and AMS Imports.
These indoor/outdoor braided rugs are made using a "Rain –or-Shine" fabric and a Cablelock construction. CMI makes the rugs, which are being sold through AMS to target outdoor furniture and patio stores.
The line features mosaic borders and end-stripe patterns. One rug is made from spun polyester and the other six in the initial collection consist of different polypropylene yarn and polyester fabric constructions. New patterns will be introduced twice a year by CMI.
