TROY, N.C. – Capel Rugs has developed four new collections of hand-knotted rug styles for spring season selling.

Set to debut at upcoming High Point Market, Oct. 14-18, these collections enhance Capel Rugs’ existing line of premium, imported wool designs with fresh assortment of on-trend patterns and colorways.

“These exciting new designs expand our range of fashion-forward options in the hand-knotted product category, which continues to be a very important market segment,” said Cameron Capel, vice president of national accounts.

The Astbury collection encompasses delicately distressed designs in cool colorways. These pieces are hand-knotted in India of 100% New Zealand wool and come in area through room-size dimensions. A 5-by-8-foot is set to retail for $1,799.

Makrana offers “a timeless look with a twist,” Capel Rugs noted, with its distressed, traditional patterns translated in four color options – gray, charcoal, slate and natural. Hand-knotted in India of a wool and viscose blend, this collection comes in accent through room-size dimensions, with an area rug size priced to retail for $1,799.
