Braided rugs are like family quilts - each strip of cloth comes from a cast-off garment and tells a story all its own. Piecing the rug together is an act of weaving family memories into a useful heirloom you'll treasure forever. Nancy Bubel covers every step of the simple process, from planning the perfect size, shape, and color scheme to cutting your cloth strips, braiding them together, and finishing off your rug.
