Capel Area Rugs

An American Tradition

America’s Rug Company

An area rug must be chosen carefully. Any area rug within the room, whether it’s a colorful or whimsical design or a more traditional neutral tone, can bring together all the other design elements in your home.

Capel rug company, located in Troy, NC , has been owned by the Capel family since the beginning. Capel’s craftsmen meticulously create these classic rugs using industry leading construction techniques and the very finest wool, cotton & performance blend fibers available.

When Leon Capel introduced the very first braided rug in 1917, he discovered that every family could benefit from the warmth and durability of a quality braided rug. More than 90 years later, they are still handcrafted in North Carolina.

The Capel Rug Company strives to keep many of their family’s traditions alive by continuing the ancestral looming and weaving processes that go into making braid rugs.
