Braided texture rug and home accessories manufacturer cmi (Colonial Mills Inc.) has created three new contoured rectangle rug collections for debut at the Las Vegas World Market later this month.The three collections are Ridgevale, Valencia and Shear Natural.
The company said its new graduated design for the contoured rectangle pattern in the collections "gives a contemporary spin on the traditional braid."
Ridgevale is a 100% wool collection that features a space-dyed multi style in six colorways. It's made in a flat-braid construction and is reversible.
The Valencia collection featured the designs of Lynette Jensen and her popular Thimbleberries fabric and quilt patterns. This flat-braid group comes in six colorways and is made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton.
Shear Natural is another flat-braid collection, but it is made of 100% eco-natural, un-dyed wool with a 3/37 yarn size into a 3-ply yarn.
All three braided-texture rug collections coordinate with a host of accessories, including accent rugs, chair pads, placemats, trivets, table runners, rug slices, heart rugs, stair treads, utility baskets and waste baskets.
