CARPETS FROM AXMINSTER
Woven to order, Axminster Carpets has been synonymous with luxury and craftsmanship for over 250 years. In fact, it is Britain’s oldest carpet designer and manufacturer, and almost certainly its best known.
With the ideology of crafting only the finest-quality carpets, using traditional techniques and artistry, there are a few things that make an Axminster Carpet so special. Firstly, only the best raw materials are used – wool is carefully selected from a range of British sheep, the UK climate endowing their wool with outstanding durability, warmth, flexibility and bounce. The backing used on the carpets is also crucial, crafted from natural cotton and jute.
These are neatly woven into lines, which leaves very small holes through which the yarn can be woven. The straight lines ensure that the final carpet design is neat, consistent and visually accurate, and upon viewing one of these superb products, it’s easy to see why they grace the floors of some of the UK’s most prestigious buildings, from top hotels to royal palaces.
But the real secret is in the world-class designs for which Axminster is renowned. The looms can produce the most incredible detail and colour, and it’s no surprise that the Axminster team today are incredibly proud of their extensive and intricate range of designs.
With all of this in mind, if you’re seeking the utmost in luxury when building, renovating or updating your dream Cornish home - be it as a permanent residence, or a holiday let aimed at visitors for whom only the very best will suffice – you will certainly want to consider our Axminster Carpets for your project.
