Founded on the Isle of Man more than 30 years ago, Manx Carpets has built a reputation across the industry for manufacturing some of the finest wool carpets available. Having endured a number of changes in ownership in its earlier years, the company relocated to Staffordshire in 2003 and has been thriving ever since.
The aptly-named Manx has all the ingredients necessary to design and create fantastic wool carpets: it blends tradition and expertise with a whole lot of British craftsmanship to ensure its products meet the high expectations of homeowners across the UK. If you’re after flooring that’s as well-made as it is affordable, Manx could well be the brand for you.
Manx’s Natural Shades carpet is just one fantastic example of the diverse range on offer here. Made from 50% wool and 50% polypropylene, it’s available in both Plain and Pinstripe designs, with each coming in a variety of colourways. You’ll have no trouble finding one that fits the existing décor in your home.
These carpets are made to pretty high standards too, so you can relax knowing yours will last wherever you put it. Both examples above come with a heavy domestic rating, so it can be laid anywhere in the home.
Like many of the industry’s best manufacturers, Manx Carpets places real importance in sustainability. The company’s processes, while focused on quality, all take the environment into consideration.
It uses eco-friendly dyes to colour its naturally renewable wools, for example, and is constantly looking for new ways to minimise its impact on the planet. Many of the firm’s floorings are also backed with another naturally grown material called jute. Every little detail has been thought about.
Invest in a Manx carpet and you know you’re buying from a company that cares.
