What Are Some Popular Country Braided Rug Styles?

Country braided rugs are a style of braided rugs that contrasts with styles such as Victorian braided rugs and contemporary braided rugs, according to Country Braid House. They can be made with various construction types such as banded braid, flat braid, yarn braid and cloth braid constructions.

Banded braid constructions use wide bands of braids arranged according to a predetermined pattern. This results in a thick look and an appealing, predictable pattern. Cloth braid construction, on the other hand, is reminiscent of a time when homemakers cut outgrown clothing into strips and hand braided them into rugs. Such rugs were common in Colonial American culture.
