SOMERSET, N.J.–At the New York Home Fashions Market next week Kas Rugs will unveil new flatweaves, naturals and scatter rugs to buyers, as well as show its regular program line and summer introductions. It shows in 295 Fifth Avenue, suite 807.

Rania, design 2455 blue paisley shown, is one new flatweave collection to debut at the show, and is jacquard woven of wool and nylon with handstitch details in India. “Flatweaves have been great,” said Wendy Reiss, key account manager of sales and marketing. “Our new Cypress collection, introduced in January, has really had wonderful sales and we are excited about some of the other items we are bringing on board which are new and different, like Rania.”

Kas will also be introducing seven new natural collections. “Naturals were one of our top categories a number of years back,” said Reiss, and are now popular again. “The product we are bringing to the market is exciting and different—more depth, texture, and ‘chunk’ to the overall pieces.” Most of the items have jute and many are very soft, she added.

In addition, it will also show four new machine-woven collections. “This will be the best new intro at New York market we have had in more than two years,” she said. “We’re excited.”
