HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Kalaty Rug Corp. is primarily emphasizing its latest area rugs at the upper end with new heirloom hand-knotted collections and additions to existing best-selling heirloom groups.

The New York-based rug manufacturer recently announced an expansion of its licensing program with fashion designer Josie Natori, adding Kalaty's first power-loomed collections under the N Natori label. N Natori serengeti and N Natori Bliss, are also making their market debut at High Point.

Additionally, the company announced that it will continue to expand its successful moderately priced K-TWO series with new collections in a variety of constructions and weaves at High Point.

“Because the spring 2020 High Point Market was cancelled due to COVID-19 and because we chose to forego the summer Atlanta and Las Vegas markets due to ongoing coronavirus concerns, we are all the more eager to greet customers in High Point,” Mike Kalaty, a company spokesperson, said. “We have something new for every customer with fashion-forward rugs in a variety of designs, textures, weaves and constructions in all styles and at all price points. Although our main focus for 2020 is our hand-knotted styles, we are adding seven collections to our more moderately priced K-TWO series. Always a Kalaty specialty, color is at the forefront, and we are emphasizing fashion colors in all of our newest collections and styles – from updated-traditional patterns in modern colorways to new abstract designs with innovative color splashes to transitional designs in sophisticated natural hues.”

“Markets may be slow to coming back, and High Point may be no exception with what will likely be different from past markets with decidedly less traffic than usual,” Kalaty explained. “However, we are looking forward to welcoming any and all customers to our showroom to show the full extent of the new designs produced since winter 2020 markets. And, for all customers not attending this market we plan to offer the option to participate in our online ‘virtual’ market.”
