Added Ilana Wilensky, VP, Jewel Branding: “The brand is synonymous with beach and outdoor lifestyle which translates very well across many home categories.”
This summer, KAS is launching 3 Hang Ten Rug Collections:
Malibu offers hand-woven chunky rugs constructed of easy-to-clean polyester that can evoke a California lifestyle or a bohemian vibe. A trendy color palette and corner tassels add depth and dimension to the room while keeping it fun and flirty. An assortment of 6 styles offered across 4 sizes kicks off this look.
Palm Beach presents simple yet polished hand-woven jute rugs in two looks: a chunky solid weave and a smoother, chic version with stripes. These natural, rustic rugs bring a refined neutral element into any space for adults or kids while keeping with the organic, beachy vibe of the Hang Ten brand. Available in 4 sizes, the initial assortment consists of six trend-colored rugs.
Rounding out the bunch is the highlight collection — Sunset Beach gives you natural jute and saari silk flatweaves that represent a free spirit with a boho look and feel we all love. Sunset Beach rugs will add a relaxed vibe to any room and are lightweight enough to roll up and take to the beach! Offered in 3 chic colorways, these rugs come in a variety of 5 sizes including a 27” x 45” scatter size up to a swanky 8’6” x 11’6”.
In the top of bed category, Hang Ten products are found at a diverse range of retailers and e-commerce sites from Bed, Bath & Beyond to Nordstrom, Kohl’s and Hayneedle. Hang Ten rugs can be found this summer at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Hayneedle and Wayfair to kick off the launch.
Hang Ten joins KAS’ licensing portfolio of lifestyle brands, which also include Libby Langdon and Bob Mackie Home.
