Braided Rugs

Rugs with braids? You can have them displayed in your household, whether it is in your bedroom, kitchen floor, bathroom  and even your living room. Braided rugs have been a staple product during the early Colonial American culture. The material used by settlers to weave this kind of floor covering were scraps of clothing and other excess materials. They can be constructed in a variety of different way, especially a band braided construction, flat braid construction, yarn braid construction, and cloth braid construction.

Braided Rugs by Capel Rugs

Capel Rugs started to operate its business in weaving braided rugs way back in 1917, founded by Leon Capel who initially named the company as ‘New Departure’. Mr. Capel’s vision was to create rugs which would stand the test of time and in order to fulfill this vision, he purchased the first two of spinning mills that the company would acquire to provide a steady supply of high quality yarns. However, during the time of Depression , everything went tough, especially for Leon who then ran out of money that he decided to offer a cow to Kell Brown, who was running the spinning mill but was rejected. Undaunted by this, Leon kept on working . With his determination to keep the company running, Leon Capel worked until the company succeeded in growing and manufacturing products.

Up to this present time, Capel Rugs continues to produce a lot of rugs, especially braided ones. They supply high quality rugs for everyone to purchase and enjoy displaying them in their room.
