Our Story


Carmen Hunt

President Texas Ragtime, Inc.

After spending many years in the Big City with other careers, we wanted a business in which we worked together toward a common goal. We brought our business plan to Athens, Texas, and with the help of many individuals in the banking and business sectors, we got started in an abandoned warehouse. Today, our factory is located on a scenic seven acre site where we house and process all our recycled textiles. Our employees are our most precious resource, and together we have established a company dedicated to superior customer service, as well as quality products!

We value the importance of the recycling concept and energy conservation as the means toward a cleaner environment. Recycled and reused textiles provide jobs and other business opportunities through our world. We are proud to be a part of this industry as we grow into other areas related to making our environment greener.


Kevin D. Cook

Vice President of Operations

As a former general manager of a national paint and coatings retailer, I understand the challenges many contractors and job supervisors face trying to source a quality product at the best price. Our team listens to buyers from many diverse industries and, we strive to solve their clean up requirements with our products which suit their needs.
