HOTrugs family. Who we are

Hi friend! I’m so glad you’re here! We at House of Tocumen rugs, or HOTrugs welcomes you to our little corner of the inter web. I am Annabell, owner and cofounder. We are a veteran owned company and I created this company four years ago, along with my husband. After many, many years of buying and subsequently throwing away rugs and decor that wasn't holding up to our children and military moves, we finally decided to delve into the world of handmade rugs.

I don’t know about you, but as a stay at home mom of five kids, money is tight. When I spend money, I want to spend it on things I know will last through my boys and pets. Over the years I bought so many rugs that couldn’t hold up to the traffic of little feet. I knew there had to be a better way. 

I have spent years sourcing, experimenting and finally finding trusted weavers and vendors. I have taken the guess work out of the process for you, and have thrown myself into the world of rugs. Sure you can go on Etsy, but as you’ll soon see, the market is flooded with fake antiques to satiate our desire for vintage goods. If you’re spending that money, make sure it’s on authentic handmade rugs. I have made those mistakes as a novice buyer, so that you don’t need to. I am here to not only offer you genuine products but educate you on how to find and buy authentic vintage rugs and home decor. 

We are an active duty military family. We were blessed to find a farm right across the border in South Carolina. When I’m not curating our collection of vintage rugs and home decor, I’m raising our four boys, one girl and standing our home stead. Currently we have six goats, two baby doll sheep, 32 chickens, two mini donkeys and two horses. 

We appreciate your business and are always here to help. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
