From the historic textile center of Fall River, MA, Merida creates beautiful, durable rugs that reimagine traditional weaving methods with efficient technologies and inventive techniques. Building on our 30-year heritage as a company of makers, we offer a unique combination of design expertise, local manufacturing, and exceptional service that expands the range of possibilities for interior designers looking to add value to their design practice.
We continually source and test new materials, techniques, and construction as we evolve distinctive collections that are beautiful, durable, and timeless. Superior raw materials, in the hands of talented designers and craftspeople, have the power to uplift and inspire long after the rug is installed.
Here’s where we can really help you take your design practice to the next level. Because we manufacture and hand-finish each rug to order, customization doesn’t end with color, sizing, and finishing options. Our design experts, craftspeople, and master installers can help you rethink what’s possible, and tailor a rug that fits to perfection.
It takes many hands to make a Merida rug, from our creative team and craftspeople in Fall River to our sales support staff across the country to our great partners around the globe who share our values. We consider everyone who works with us part of our extended family, in particular our interior design clients whose talent inspires us every day.
More than 20 years ago, Merida made the decision to manufacture in Fall River, Massachusetts, a historic mill town that was once America’s leading textile center. We knew it would be challenging to manufacture in the US, but we believed the market was ready for beautiful, high-quality products made by expert craftspeople. Fall River had the people and skills to deliver on that.
Today, our 40,000 square-foot workshop hums to the rhythms of heritage and modern looms at work. Committed to a rigorous design process and an innovative approach to manufacturing, our talented team of designers and craftspeople continue to build a distinguished portfolio of products that honor timeless tradition with inventive design.
We invite the architecture and design communities to tap our textile expertise, knowledge of materials, and extensive customization capabilities to create distinctive and durable rugs that will add value to their design practices – and delight their clients for years to come.
