Thomas Whitty began making Axminster method carpets in 1755.
102 years later a carpet manufacturer called Harry Dutfield was on a train where he met a vicar from the West Country who told him that carpets had not been made in Axminster for a while due to a disastrous fire that had destroyed the factory. The germ of an idea was born and in 1937 the decision was taken to relaunch carpet manufacturing in the town of Axminster.
Our Axminsters are natural, British and beautiful, often 100% wool, jute backed, and in many cases made on eight-pitch looms, the ultimate in quality, unique to the Axminster Carpets company.
