Capel Rugs, with the largest selection of rug categories, are as durable as they are beautiful, and they can stand up to all you dish out. Using the finest quality 100% polypropelene - the top choice for outdoor use - Capel's outdoor rugs are water resistant and fade resistant with yarn that has been dyed with highly UV-resistant pigments. These rugs are easily cleaned and require little to no maintenance.
The company was founded in 1917 in North Carolina, and is the oldest and largest braided rug manufacturer in the United States. With traditional techniques going back to the artisans of early America, they’re known as “America’s Rug Company”. Their products proudly display special touches that make them uniquely American, such as hand-guided braiding, highlighted in the American Originals collection. Capel Rugs is based in Troy, NC where the company still does the spinning, dyeing, weaving, braiding and sewing for Capel's American Original™ braided rugs. Capel features American made rugs from original braids to fine hand-knotted rugs for every room and occasion.
There isn't just one way to use a Capel Anywhere™ outdoor rug. Add your favorite in front of a sink, in your mudroom, at your front door, and in any outdoor living space. Caring for your Capel Anywhere rug is easy when you keep these considerations in mind:
If the rug remains in an uncovered area outdoors and is subjected to rain or heavy dew, it should be allowed to dry backside and front. Uninterrupted dampness can cause some fiber breakdown over time.
For dirt smudges on the surface or grit buildup on the underside of the rug, a mild detergent and warm water sponging (rinse with cold water) is recommended. Allow to dry thoroughly both top and backside before re-using.
Although fibers are UV treated to help block the sun's rays, nothing is totally fade free, so for extended periods of non-use we suggest rolling the dry rug and keeping it in a covered, shaded area.
You can expect years of beauty and enjoyment from a Capel braided rug when it is maintained properly. Home care is very important for any floor covering, and braided rugs may require some unique maintenance over the years, easily accomplished at home.
When first unrolled, a new braid may have a wrinkle or a bulge appear that prevents it from laying flat on the floor. This is common and is a result of being tightly rolled or folded during shipment.
The wrinkle is easily removed if the proper method is used. Lay the rug as flat as possible. Use a broom handle or similar pole and, starting in the center using a sweeping motion, push one half of the wrinkle to the left. Then push the remaining half of the wrinkle to the right side of the rug. Never push the entire wrinkle to one side or end of the rug; this only stretches the rug and may damage it.
REVERSE AND ROTATE
Reverse and rotate braided rugs as they soil. This process will prolong the life of the rug by evenly distributing the traffic to both sides.
During initial use, excess sprouts of yarn may work their way to the surface of the rug. This is to be expected, and in no way lessens its wearability. These sprouts should be clipped off at the base with scissors. Do not pull the yarn out as this may result in damage to the rug.
Only the strongest threads are used to stitch the braids together. Should these stitches become broken and cause braids to separate, the rug should be repaired immediately to prevent further separation. The rug can be restored to its original strength by using a simple whip stitch to repair it.
Start just before the damaged area and stitch the braids together. Extend the stitches just beyond the damaged area and then secure them with a knot. Try to duplicate the thread color and use the same size stitch originally used in sewing the braid.
Vacuum regularly. Do not shake or beat the rug since this treatment could damage it. Clean spills immediately by blotting with a cloth or sponge. Remove any grease spots with ordinary dry cleaning solvents.
Professional or "in home" periodic cleanings using the power spray-extraction carpet cleaning method are recommended. Allow to dry flat on the floor. Clean one side at a time and allow it to dry before reversing to clean the other side.
