About DuraCord Yarns
DuraCord is a man-made, industrial-strength yarn with the look and feel of cotton. DuraCord is produced under strict manufacturing standards and undergoes ultraviolet treatments and other anti-microbial enhancements, which help keep it from degrading even under the worst outdoor conditions. Jute, which is often used in the construction of outdoor rugs, is not part of the make-up of DuraCord rugs or their backing, since it often causes mildew growth.
DuraCord is soft, with an extra-thick loft that's unlike any outdoor rug you've ever experienced - in fact, it's soft enough for use indoors, too! It features UV protection that stands up to 1,000 hours of exposure (keeping the dyes from fading), and is fast-drying, with .05% moisture retention. It's also resistant to stains, abrasions, mildew, and bleach.
Finally, DuraCord is environmentally friendly. Producing these rugs requires less energy and water than production of other synthetic fibers that don't last as long, and DuraCord offers a recycling program that lets you return your rug for recycling when it's reached the end of its lifespan.
The Hand-Hooking Process
To create your DuraCord rug, craftspeople following strict design standards use an ancient hand-hooking technique developed in the Orient. First, the design of the rug is placed onto the base synthetic canvas. The canvas is then stretched onto a frame, at which point the artisans will begin the true creation of the rug. DuraCord yarn, which begins life wound onto spools, is threaded into a rug needle and hooked into the canvas, following the transferred lines of the design.
After hooking, the rug is finished with a weather-proof binding adhesive and an open-weave net, which help hold the rug together and keep its shape and size intact. Plush, comfortable, durable, and incredibly detailed, these high-quality rugs are originals - because of the nature of handcraftsmanship, no two are exactly alike.
About Hammock Source and DuraCord
This DuraCord rug is manufactured by The Hammock Source, a designer and manufacturer of Hatteras Hammocks and the Original Pawleys Island Hammocks. The Hammock Source successfully developed a revolutionary synthetic yarn with long-lasting color and the soft feel of cotton - a combination previously unattainable. The resulting DuraCord yarn proved to live up to the strength and colorfastness they desired. In 2004, Hammock Source began incorporating DuraCord yarns into other fashion fabrics for outdoor and indoor use - including colorfast rugs with fresh custom designs.
