HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Kaleen has launched a number of new collections in popular styles and constructions for High Point Market which can be viewed at the company's showroom C407.
Included in the latest additions to the Kaleen rug roster are several all-wool hand-tufted collections created to appeal to furniture stores, Kaleen's Blake Dennard explained. "Retailers, particularly furniture stores, still want hand-tufted wool, and Kaleen -- one of the few vendors still offering wool tufted -- believes that business is here to stay. But machine-made is also not going away," he added. The company's latest introductions in the machine-made category include not only indoor product but also performance indoor-outdoor area rug designs.
