The History of Wilton Carpets
Wilton Carpets has forged a reputation for excellence through decades spent immersed in good design and unwavering attention to carpet craft. Situated in the Wiltshire town of the same name, Wilton has been the historic and spiritual home of carpet weaving for nearly 400 years, and has come to stand for fine carpets of enduring quality.
All our woven axminster carpets are designed and made in Wilton using British wool, regarded as the world’s best for its blend of resilience and recovery. Embracing our heritage with 100-year old narrowloom machines, still lovingly operated to this day, and celebrating innovation with a robotic high-speed loom that gives instant colour switching, we make carpets which reflect our passion and culture. Every carpet that leaves Wilton has been expertly made with skilled hands; the embodiment of the very best in modern manufacturing blended with traditional craftsmanship.
Wilton Carpets has designed bespoke carpets for an impressive array of buildings and venues, demonstrating that good carpet craft has a place in modern interiors as it does in bringing authenticity to traditional buildings. Through a highly-experienced team of carpet designers who have been responsible for leading public buildings, country house and city hotels, theatres, restaurants, cinemas, public houses, golf clubs, further education, conference centres and more; Wilton Carpets brings concepts to life with accuracy, speed and creativity.
