Marietta, Ga. – Several soft floor covering partners of Wools of New Zealand will be presenting their new branded wares in Las Vegas in January come the newly aligned Surfaces and Las Vegas World Market events.
Many such suppliers will additionally be launching products carrying Wools of New Zealand’s new Laneve brand, representing wool that comes from farms meeting superior sustainable standards that are accredited and traceable back to source.
Bloomsburg Carpet, in booth No. 4728 at Surfaces, will show its first Wools of New Zealand Laneve-branded product, which it calls Wool Shear Watercolor. This is a 62-ounce, 1/8-gauge, tufted random tip shear design interpreted in nine soft pastel shades.
Couristan, in Surfaces booth No. 5300, will launch Saybrook, Carlyle and Blakely -- all Wilton woven of 100% New Zealand wool and branded by Wools of New Zealand. Available in five colors, these are multi-textured loop designs.
Karastan, which operates a showroom in space C-0896 at the World Market Center, is debuting its Woven Impressions collection of rugs. It is also expanding its Original Karastan collection to include two new patterns -- Persian Garden and Bella Rosa.
