Today Axminster Carpets is still a family run business based in the heart of Axminster, the Devon town that gave the carpets their name. The history of carpet making in the town dates back to 1755 when Thomas Whitty made carpets using what became known as the Axminster method of weaving.
Our exclusive blends of premium quality wools give the carpets their unique soft spring underfoot. All of the woven carpets are made with special blend of 100% pure new wool and the tufted carpets with at least 80% wool, so you can be sure you are getting a carpet that will last and feel soft and luxurious under foot for many years.Wool is nature’s own high performance fibre, offering durability, warmth, flexibility and reliability. The majority of the wool they use comes from British sheep, which they combine into specialist blends to suit each particular type of carpet.
Wool is a great natural insulator and also helps reduce noise which adds cosiness and warmth to a room. It’s naturally flame retardant and doesn’t melt like man-made fibres do. It’s also sustainable, renewable and biodegradable – this is as important to them as it is to our customers. It is highly absorbent meaning that it can hold 33% of its own weight in water before it feels wet. This enables a wool carpet to help control the humidity of a room.
