Invented in the early 1700s in the town of our name, the Wilton weave method is one of the oldest ways of making carpets on machine-driven looms. To this very day, Wilton carpets are still made in our factory, using century-old looms that make bespoke narrow-width carpet for prestigious locations.
Wilton woven wool carpets are made by continuous threads raised above the surface of the backing by hooks and can be finished in a variety of ways – cut, loop (commonly referred to as Brussels weave) and cut and loop. Made in up to five-colours, so capable of reproducing simple patterns, wilton woven carpets are exceptionally hardwearing and stable, making them ideal for use in narrow-width applications such as corridors, walkways and halls.
At Wilton, we produce 0.69m and 0.91m wide variants on our traditional eight-pitch jacquard looms. We’ve spent centuries perfecting our craft and our Wilton woven carpets can be found in some of the UK’s most famous buildings. With standard, double density and fine double density yarn counts, we produce the very finest wool-rich Wilton carpets. We can also use our Wilton loom to make Chlidema wool carpets, the ultimate in wall-to-wall luxury for the most demanding of residences.
