The Walnut Creek collection is a wool, transitional rug design from Capel Rugs. Walnut Creek rugs have a flat woven construction. Flat-woven rugs are unique due to their method of construction. Unlike knotted wool rugs, flat-woven rugs are made on a loom. They are thin with a very low pile, making them ideal for an entryway where door clearance is an issue. However, they are extremely durable and many are reversible for extended life and beauty.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.
