Vintage Axminster Resurrecting An Old Beauty

 Axminster carpets are synonymous with New Zealand history, bringing back vivid colours, bold shapes and designs of carpets from yesteryear that once adorned the floors of New Zealand homes.

We're thrilled that these vintage beauties are being upcycled and now take pride of place as a feature piece in todays modern homes, and deservedly so.

We accept all vintage carpets, as long as they're clean, and all extras (ie flooring tacks) removed

We proud to share some of the projects we've been working on,  aiming to breath some new life into these classics

 

Enjoy! 

 

Pick a colour, any colour.....

 

From understated accents to bold additions, we offer an extensive range of vintage yarn colours to make the statement you want!

Stage 1 - The Raw Material

 

It all starts with a piece of carpet

Stage 2  - Substance

 

Sometimes we all need an extra boost.

By adding an underlay, it compliments the carpet by providing extra depth and richness
