Woven Axminster carpets offer architects and end-users distinct advantages over any other available flooring surface on the market in terms of aesthetics, performance and value. Axminster carpets are woven on looms that offer unique flexibilities in colours and design. Each piece of pile yarn is individually woven into place allowing even the most complex and intricate designs to be created with pinpoint precision and high-definition.
Since the pile and backing are interwoven, each face yarn of the carpet is locked into place with the pattern woven all the way through the carpet. This unique construction process provides Axminster carpets with superior durability and appearance retention, purposely designed to withstand the wear and tear often associated with high traffic areas.
Key features and benefits of Signature Axminster carpet collection include 80% virgin wool/ 20% anti-static nylon material for long-lasting beauty and additional strength in heavy traffic areas; two ply yarns skein dyed for vivid colours making carpet design come alive; resilient wool-rich material providing substantial advantages in aesthetics, durability, appearance retention and overall value; excellent recovery from compression; absorption of harmful pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide contributing to greater air purity; and absorption/ release of moisture during periods of high and low humidity assisting with stabilising the thermal properties of the space.
