Our Story

Handcrafted Abroad, Curated in Charleston

Cord + Cotton was born out of Julia’s eye for design and love of all things vintage. She spends countless hours working with our amazing artisans and vendors to curate our collections of vintage + modern pieces that you see in our shop today. We strive to offer beautiful products of the highest quality at reasonable prices, making these treasured pieces accessible to everyone!

Globally Sourced

We partner with our talented vendors to create and source beautiful handwoven pieces from Turkey and India.

Exceptional Quality

Each rug in our curated collection of vintage and modern pieces are woven from the highest quality wool and created to last decades.

Accessibly Priced

We have a strong and ongoing relationship with our vendors abroad to ensure we can offer our rugs at prices to reach a variety of budgets.

Personalized Service

Our team is committed to working with our clients until they find the perfect rug for their space, style and budget.

For the Love of Vintage
Our heart + soul is vintage rugs. It's where cord + cotton started, and will always be our first love. We love to think about how each vintage rug is full of so many stories from its lifetime before it arrives to us, and that it has a lifetime of stories ahead when it enters your home!
Truly One-of-a-Kind
We use the phrase one-of-a-kind often around here - because it’s true! Every product in our store is handmade and so special. Our vintage collection rugs are perfectly faded from years of wear and our new production rugs have natural variations as they are hand-knotted to order.
Meet Julia

We are a vintage and modern textile shop based out of Charleston, South Carolina. All of our products are carefully and intentionally curated for our brand with the help of our incredibly talented vendors and artisans abroad. Our founder, Julia, has an eye for color and design and hand selects each piece with the utmost attention to detail, quality, and beauty. Having been born and raised in coastal South Carolina, Julia pulls a lot of her brand inspiration and influence from the clean + coastal colors of the Lowcountry.

Meet Sarah

Hey y'all! I was born here in Charleston and raised in Raleigh, NC. After graduating from Clemson University, I returned to the lowcountry and worked as a pediatric oncology nurse, joining Julia in the vintage rug world in the midst of 2020. I handle all inventory management - from intaking new inventory to order fulfillment. I also help manage customer relations & strategic planning.
