Thomas Whitty began making Axminster method carpets in 1755. These original Axminster Carpets could be found in Chatsworth House and Brighton Pavilion, as well as being bought by King George III and Queen Charlotte, who visited the Axminster factory. We are re-creating some of the original Thomas Whitty designs from the 18th century, exclusively for interior designers and architects. These beautiful designs are made from 100% wool and available in a variety of rug sizes. 


The Vintage collection uses delicate, floral designs from the 1960s Axminster Carpets catalogue.


Our Kaleidoscope collection is a range of striking, contemporary carpets. Animal print and geometric patterns combine to make a unique variety of eye-catching designs.


As well as several other exclusive collections!
