From The New York Market —
Longtime bath and beach towel supplier Espalma By Cobra is stepping into bath rugs for the first time, with 10 collections debuting at the New York Home Textiles Market.
“With the demise of Fieldcrest, we felt we could pick up some new business,” said Rae Ellen Blum, vice president, national sales manager.
The 10 new rug styles and colorways coordinate directly with 10 existing ensemble collections of bath, hand and tip towels.
Manufactured in India, the rugs are made of 100 percent cotton and are available in a variety of constructions — reversible, shag, tufted, multi-yarn and popcorn, among others.
Sizes include 2-by-3 and runners. A set will retail for $10 to $20, depending on the construction. The bath rugs cater to the same customers as the company's coordinating bath ensembles — specialty stores and catalogs.
