WHY BUY A CARPET ?

 

There is nothing quite like woven carpets to add comfort, warmth and character to a room.

A carpet will transform an interior in a way that no other single item of furniture can,

yet will often cost less and last longer.

 

Noise reduction

A carpet cushions the impact of the noise, aiding relaxation and improving ambiance

 

Dust trapping

Carpeted rooms have better air quality than rooms with hard flooring

Carpet traps dust in the pile until removed by vacuuming

Wool carpets also show air quality improvement through lower VOC's and improved humidity control

 

Energy saving

Carpets do not only create the feeling of warmth,

they actually help retain heat in a room by acting like a thermal insulator

 

Environmental impact

Woven carpets consume 60% less non-renewable resources in manufacturing than other types of carpets.

Wool, jute and cotton are renewable resources.

 

 

 

WHY BUY A WOVEN CARPET ?

 

When buying a carpet it is important to buy a product equal to the task,

avoiding early replacement and ensuring value for money.

 

Woven carpets have 3 distinct advantages:

 

Appearance Retention

Dynamic Stability

Precision of Texture

 

The interlocking warp threads (lengthwise) and weft threads (crosswise) are produced in such a way

that the tufts of carpet yarn are secured between them row by row.

 

The backing and surface are created together during weaving making the carpet dimensionally stable.

 

The manufacturing process produces a very precise texture which is difficult to emulate in tufted carpets

 

 

 

WILTON WEAVING

 

Plain or single-frame Wilton comes from the traditional 'Warp and Weft' weaving process.

 

It is generally considered the most 'authentic' and 'prestigious' of all weaving processes.

 

A traditional Wilton weave carpet is one in which the pile threads run continuously into the carpet

and are raised above the surface of the integral backing by means of wires or hooks.

 

As the backing is being woven, pile yarns are introduced lengthways, (that is, from the warp direction)

and looped over wires inserted across (weft direction) the weaving machine.

 

A patterned effect in a combination of cut and loop rows may be created and enhanced by using stippled

or multi-coloured yarn combination.
