The Making of a Capel Original Braid
Every braid begins with the spinning of yarns. From wool to chenille, Capel uses
the finest quality material in every rug.
The yarns are dyed in-house in a rainbow of vibrant colors.
After they dry, the colored yarns are woven into braids in Capel's Troy, N.C. factory.
The braids are hand sewn together to form almost any shape imaginable, from oval
and rectangular rugs to customer size runners and chair pads.
Every Capel Braid is thoroughly inspected for quality and consistency.
After they’ve been inspected, each braided rug is shipped from Capel's factory to
stores all over the world.
Made in Capel's Troy, N.C., factory since 1917, Capel braided rugs are true American
Originals. Handcrafted from the finest wool, cooton and performance blend yarns,
Capel's braids are recognized around the world for their peerless craftsmanship
and unique beauty.
