A Brief History
Axminster Carpets

Axminster Carpets are the main product of  Kidderminster today, but this product  is a relative newcomer from the
late 19th century. Taking the name of an  earlier form of hand-knotted rug (the finest and most expensive English carpets),  Chenille Axminsters, developed in 1839  by James Templeton of Glasgow,  simulated the rich quality of the  hand-knotted rugs and could weave  room size seamless rugs (sadly, these are  no longer made anywhere). Spool and gripper  Axminsters were a later development  that made a durable machine  woven carpet with a thick pile,  but of a more modest expense  than other woven carpets. These are still  made in large quantities for hotels, pubs,  and residential use. William Morris  and C.F.A. Voysey were among the  famous designers who drew patterns
for Axminster carpets.
