Axminster encompasses the traditional art of carpet design and manufacture. It’s a family run business based in the heart of Axminster, the Devon town that gave the carpets their name. It’s a well-established brand that has been popular with homeowners and house builders for decades. We find that customers often look for more traditional brands as they feel that they are suppliers that they can trust.

All woven carpets are made with a special blend of 100% pure new wool and tufted carpets with at least 80% wool. This blend along with some beautiful colours and designs makes this brand a popular choice.

Axminster wool from only from the best British sheep is turned into yarn, and due to our climate here in the UK the wool selected offers exceptional warmth, flexibility and durability. There are several carpet ranges:

Simply Natural
The Simply Natural range has been made with a unique cabled yarn and is inspired by the textures of traditional hand-woven carpets. This stunning range will bring rural charm into your home, while the beautifully soft wool will add a touch of luxury. Available in a gentle palette of pure whites, soft greys and natural grasses.
