With more than 250 years of expertise and over 20 years of experience in supplying the rail industry, Axminster Carpets is proud to be the largest supplier of sustainable, woven rail carpet in the UK.
Supplying beautifully bespoke carpets to some of the UK’s biggest rail operators, Axminster carpets can be seen on hundreds of rail services across the country, including Northern, TransPennine Express and South Western Railway as well as on the luxurious and historic Belmond British Pullman. Careful design and expert craftsmanship were woven into each carriage’s carpet, ensuring true resilience and comfort.
Our British origins remain at our core; from sourcing to weaving. The finest raw materials are selected from within the UK, allowing us to closely oversee quality and care, whilst supporting local British farming. Expertly crafted, all our rail carpets are designed and woven in Axminster, Devon – where our in-house team create bespoke, distinct carpets. Due to the cooler climate, British wool offers more benefits in carpet manufacturing – giving us even more reason to remain rooted in the UK.
Wool carries a host of benefits for carpets, from environmental to personal. Natural, renewable and biodegradable, wool carpets absorb VOCs and aid in supporting healthier living. Carrying environmental peace of mind, we are proud that each Axminster carpet is manufactured with a very low carbon footprint. Wool’s natural fire retardancy allows us to boast enhanced safety credentials – with every carpet carrying the highest fire certification. Always striving for eco-conscious crafting, we offer an undyed wool option – to give a truly natural, authentic wool feel to our designs.
