Started in 1917 by A. Leon Capel to supply braided rugs, Capel is now the largest and oldest supplier of area rugs in America. But Capel knows that "big and old don't make you good". To stay on top of the competition and keep its coveted number one slot, a family member runs every area of Capel operation from manufacturing to importing. The company's philosophy has remained the same for 75 years, "Styles and tastes change; appreciation for quality does not." Choices include more than 300 styles and 1000 color combinations including reversible braided rugs made in Troy, NC; woven and flatweaves from Europe and the Far East; Oriental reproductions; hand-hooked in traditional, country, contemporary, and art deco; and hand-knotted Indian and Chinese. Each style is offered in a large range of sizes or you can special order a custom size. The catalog faithfully reproduces colors and shows off their styles very well.
Royal Intercontinental Carpets
Royal Intercontinental, the premier Tibetan Carpets Company, has a collection of superb quality hand made carpets. Our Carpets are hand-knotted by master weavers using only the finest Tibetan wool that is trekked from the high plateaus of the Himalayas. The extremely high lanolin content of this wool creates a rich, lustrous finish that has been prized by Tibetans for generations. Royal Tibetan carpet is designed to last for generations and will truly be tomorrow's heirloom.
