In 1984 in a small garage in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Foreign Accents was born. They had visions of new contemporary design.
In the past 20 years, Foreign Accents has been able to find outstanding manufacturing partners in over 30 countries. From handmades to machine-mades, hand-wovens, machine-wovens to hand-knotteds, pile rugs to flatweaves, even rugs made from banana bark - they work with some of the very best.
Foreign Accents has been richly rewarded for its efforts in spearheading contemporary design in the industry. At the New York Home Textiles Show, they have received the "Best New Product" award - three times! In many industry publications, Foreign Accents has been cited as the importer who continues to set the trends in modern rugs.
For 20 years, Foreign Accents has sold to furniture stores and designers on six continents, and continue to serve thousands of retailers - old friends and new - with the best contemporary design any rug importer has to offer.
