Oriental Weavers has forged a strategic alignment of its North American distribution, Sphinx, and domestic manufacturing operation, OW America. The alignment, effective January 1, 2004, makes for a "100 percent customer-focused strategy." In 1991, Sphinx by Oriental Weavers was formed to distribute machine-made area rugs produced by parent company Oriental Weavers in Egypt but for distribution in North America. In 1994, the company created OW America, a rug manufacturing division based in Dalton, Georgia.
