Synonymous with quality and excellence, Axminster is a well-known name not just in the UK, but around the world. The company was established in 1755 in Devon. With a history that dates back 250 years, the brand brings an unmatched level of experience and dedication to quality to the flooring industry. Now, Axminster carpets can be found in the royal household, stately properties, luxurious hotels, as well as in homes all around the world. We’re proud to offer you a vast range of designs from this legendary brand, here at Floorstore.
You know it’s an Axminster as soon as you walk on its surface
All woven carpets made by Axminster feature pure new wool, while the tufted designs have at least 80% wool. But that’s not all. The company uses British wool, carefully selected from all over the country. Premium quality and resilient, the yarns last a lifetime. Although using modern and state-of-the-art techniques, Axminster continue to turn to traditional carpet making methods, reflecting the brand’s rich history. When you buy an Axminster carpet, you receive a beautiful and durable product that also represents the very best in British manufacturing.
Beautiful designs backed by superior quality
Bright colours and intricate details always amaze in an Axminster carpet. But each woven product’s good looks are backed by an impressive level of quality. Committed to creating premium carpets, the company uses a special weaving process. The yarns are woven through the high-quality backing layer and not tufted to the backing. As a result, their woven carpets provide more durability and peace of mind.
Since this process allows the brand to use finer yarns, the designs are also sharper, brighter and more vibrant. Intricate details are beautifully defined, whether it’s an elegant carpet for a stately home or a colourful design for a child’s room.

The benefits of using quality wool
Natural and warm, a wool carpet or rug is always a great choice for a modern home. The yarns are incredibly resilient and durable, which means that the surface will handle almost anything in a busy home.
Wool also provides a range of benefits compared to synthetic fibres. It’s an excellent acoustic and heat insulator, as well as naturally flame retardant.
By absorbing volatile organic chemicals in the air, wool purifies indoor air. This means that a quality wool carpet is ideal for those who suffer from airborne allergies. Wool also absorbs humidity, effectively acting as a natural humidistat. Finally, wool is completely natural, biodegradable and renewable. A perfect choice for those who care about the environment.
