Custom Axminster Program
In terms of value, performance, and aesthetics, woven Axminster carpet outperform all other flooring options on the market for architects and end users. The looms used to weave Axminster carpets offer distinctive color and design flexibility. Because each piece of pile yarn is woven into place, even the most complex and intricate designs can be created with high-definition and pinpoint precision.
Even though every carpet has a pile and a backing, woven Axminster carpets are different from tufted carpets in how they are woven. With Axminster looms, the pile and backing materials are woven together in one operation, preventing delamination, which can lead to bubbles, ripples, and premature product failure in areas with high traffic.
Each face yarn of the carpet is locked into place with the pattern woven through the carpet because the pile and backing are interwoven. Axminster carpets are purposely designed to withstand the wear and tear frequently associated with high-traffic areas thanks to this one-of-a-kind construction process, which provides superior durability and appearance retention.
