The production process of Wilton carpet is very similar to that of the Axminster (the pile of the carpet is inserted into the backing as it is woven and cut to length, creating U-shaped tufts that give a velvety surface)- the principle difference being that a continuous fiber is woven all the way through. The fibers can then be cut to create a range of cut and loop textured effect. This is the oldest method of carpet weaving and makes Wilton carpets unrivalled in quality, luxury and durability. 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. Wilton carpets are often cut or loop products and different yarn types can be used to produce different surface textures. Wilton weaving is not as versatile as Axminster for the production of patterned carpets, due to continuous yarns that create waste yarns on the back of the carpet. Available in a wide variety of colours, pattern, backing and high quality materials, our range of Wilton carpets are a fit for one and all!
