TROY, N.C.-Textiles company Hable Construction is the latest company to team up with Capel Rugs to offer an exclusive line of area rugs featuring whimsical and fun designs.
The initial rollout will debut next month at the October High Point Market, and will include several wool loop-hook constructions and three complementary made in the USA braided collections with a simple contemporary style theme, as well as a kids-oriented line called Hableland. Hable is known for its bold, graphic patterns composed of abstracted motifs mixed with colorful, hand-drawn details. The new area rug line will include both brand new designs as well as ones existing from Hable's line, which includes pillows, tote bags, fabric, storage and other accessories.
"The Capel product development team is constantly searching for the most creative and unique designer brands," said Allen Robertson, vice president of sales. "We have teamed up with Susan and Kate to develop a versatile line of rugs featuring bold graphic patterns and modern color palettes that is sure to create excitement at retail."
At next year's April High Point Market, the line will expand with a variety of handknotted collections in a more sophisticated color palette, as well as other fresh constructions, the company said.
"We are excited to partner with Capel on this new line because, like us, they are a family owned and operated company that makes products right here in the United States," said Susan Hable Smith. "We strive to work with American companies that manufacture the best products in places with the top skill sets and Capel fits right in with that mission."
