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 founder. I created this company two years ago, after many many years of buying and subsequently throwing away rugs and decor that weren’t holding up to our children and military moves. I don’t know about you, but as a stay at home mom of four 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 goods. I have made those mistakes as a novice buyer, so that you don’t need to. I am here to not only offer you 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 and buy 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 and standing our home stead. Currently we have four goats, one baby doll sheep, 32 chickens and will soon add four mini donkeys to our family. 

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