Caraway Strings was named in honor of Rozie DeLoach's father, Wayne Caraway, who had a retirement hobby of instrument rentals that grew into a violin shop. DeLoach founded Caraway Strings on her own in 2003 and followed a similar path - first providing school rentals, then retail, and now offering a full service team of fine instrument sales and repair & restoration work for bowed instruments.
