The timeless plaid is re-imagined in the Thames collection. Woven with our vintage shuttle looms, in a subtle basket weave, they are constructed of a wool blend for durability and years of enjoyment. The Thames style is a wool-blend, casual rug design from Capel Rugs. Made-to-order, Thames rugs have a flat woven construction.About the Brand
With 100 years of heritage in every rug, Capel Rugs’ designs are unsurpassed and uncompromised in quality. Started in 1917 by A. Leon Capel, a 17-year old from North Carolina, Capel created the very first reversible braided rug, calling it “New Departure”. Capel has since manufactured rugs for big name brand companies and even designed rugs for President Franklin Roosevelt’s Hyde Park home. More than 100 years later, Capel and our weaving partners worldwide continue to enhance our reputation as the leader in braided and handwoven rugs. We also pride ourselves in our flat woven, machine made, hand tufted, hand knotted, loop hooked and indoor/outdoor rug collections.
