Alaska Rug Company is owned and operated solely by Robert and Anita Shane, who own and reside at the Port Bailey Cannery, a 100-year-old decommissioned cannery on the island of Kodiak. The Shanes live on-site year round. They started Alaska Rug Company in winter 2010 when they both decided to quit smoking. In lieu of strangling one another while quitting they came up with a way to keep their hands busy and started playing with rope, finding designs and knots, and began making rugs which led to much more. Alaska Rug Company is an Eco-friendly company based out of Port Bailey, Alaska, which is located on the NW side of Kodiak Island Archipelago. Alaska Rug Company uses 100% Authentic Alaskan Fishing Line and Rope to make beautiful handwoven durable doormats, throw rugs, curtain tie backs, trivets, bowls, shapes, letters, and so much more. Alaska Rug Company is committed to re-purposing rope all over Alaska and up-cycling it into beautiful handwoven durable rugs, mats and other housewares rather than let it clog our landfills or end up all over the beaches.
