Refashioning the Silk Road: Capel Transforms Historic Pattern
for Thailand Outdoor Collection

Gorder, Williamsburg® and Hand Tufted Styles Round Out Las Vegas Market Debuts

TROY, N.C. – Capel reweaves the rich, concentrated patterns of the Silk Road for today’s consumer in the new Thailand outdoor collection. Debuting with three designs, Thailand carries out a modern vibe on the traditional ikat and lotus themes.

"We've reworked what are typically richly-hued fabrics in lighter, casual patterns and colors, just right for outdoor spaces," says Tami Watras, vice president-product and creative director for Capel Rugs.

Wilton woven of 100 percent olefin in Belgium, Thailand incorporates relaxing and muted tones of washed khaki and weathered chambray. While made to endure exterior conditions, they are soft enough for indoor use and are available in sizes ranging from 3'11" by 5'6" to 7'10" by 11'.

Williamsburg® Deals
History takes another modern turn in the latest Williamsburg® Collection addition as Capel aims its New Style Point of View™ at a contemporary interpretation of the historic Bowden Scallop pattern.

"Consumers want to see new and current," says Watras. "We've taken an archived needlepoint upholstery covering found in the Williamsburg home of John D. Rockefeller and stylishly conveyed the historical sense by moving this design into a contemporary realm by playing with scale and color."

The classic pattern gets a makeover with an airy design, lightened colors and soft, 100 percent hand tufted wool. The Bowden Scallop rug is available in four colorways (bamboo, blue bell, parchment and spice) in sizes ranging from 5' by 8' to 8' by 11'.

New Colorway for Mirza
A new colorway for the Velvet Mirzal collection also makes its debut. The 100 percent wool, hand-tufted rug design adds black to its offerings that also include gold. Both colorways are available in round, rectangle and runner shapes.
