The Derbyshire carpet & flooring company

We’re proud of our heritage, our people and our designs. Quality in design and craftsmanship is guaranteed with every Axminster Carpet – each one is made using our traditional methods and is individually inspected.
Today Axminster Carpets is still a family run business based in the heart of Axminster, the Devon town that gave the carpets their name. The history of carpet making in the town dates back to 1755 when Thomas Whitty made carpets using what became known as the Axminster method of weaving.
