A while back my wife
and I bought an area rug from Lowes. I think we paid a couple hundred bucks
for the thing. It was positioned in a heavy traffic area between our front
door and the dinning room. Within weeks after the rug was laid down, I
noticed that one corner of the rug started to curl. My wife tried to flatten
the thing out by placing a sticky pad under that corner, to help hold the thing
down. However the curl progressed and got even worse.
It now looks as the photo below
slows. We have tried tying a cord on the corner and maintained a constant
stretching force without any success. The rug was made in India.
What ever happened to the good old US rug manufacturers?
