The Axminster Collection from Floorpride

Add designer flair with a woven carpet

At Floorpride, we believe in bringing the finest flooring to elevate your living or working space. Our curated collection of Axminster carpets embodies the pinnacle of luxury, craftsmanship, and artistic expression. These exquisite woven masterpieces, handcrafted with centuries-old techniques, offer a unique blend of timeless elegance and unparalleled durability, making them the ultimate choice for discerning homeowners and commercial clients alike..

 

The Art of Weaving

Axminster carpets are renowned for their exceptional quality and intricate designs, meticulously woven on specialised looms. Unlike traditional tufted carpets, individual yarn tufts are precisely inserted into the backing, creating a dense and durable pile that can withstand high-traffic areas while maintaining its luxurious appearance. This centuries-old craft, originating in the town of Axminster in Devon, England, has been preserved and refined by skilled artisans, ensuring that every Axminster carpet is a true work of art.

 

Bespoke or Ready-to-Wear

At Floorpride, we understand that every space is unique, and your flooring should reflect your personal style and vision. That's why we offer two distinct Axminster carpet options to cater to your specific needs:

  2.
