Maples develops new printing, micro-nylon techniques bath rug introductions

Maples Rugs

At the New York Market - Via a new company-developed fiber and printing construction technique, Maples Rugs has brought to market a stand-alone fashion bath rug.

Wade Maples, co-owner, said the collection stems from "a new technique we developed to produce a sift yarn with a printed pattern. Normally, it's difficult to print on a soft yarn because it doesn't stay in position for the printer. But we've come up with our own method to solve this problem."

These printed bath rugs are set to retail for $19.99.

Also new in Maples bath rug category for market is its micro-nylon collection. The company "changed the construction of a new Invista [branded] fiber to make it softer," Maples explained. This collection represents the company's "top of the market" at $24.99.

"It's our softest rug right now," he added. "It's got a soft hand a cushioned underfoot."

All of these rugs are solid colored and come in a broad palette.
