From fleece to floor with Brintons

Carpets are an underfoot luxury that you can sink your feet into to truly feel at home. For the cream of the carpet crop, you need look no further than Brintons.

Brintons carpets are made from an 80% wool/20% nylon blend for the perfect combination of softness and durability. Brintons use the wool from British sheep as their wool is widely acknowledged as the best in the world for carpet – prized for its springiness. And because it’s a completely natural product it feels cool in the summer and warm and cosy in winter. As an added bonus, it’s a sustainable choice that will help to insulate your home whilst also being recyclable and biodegradable. Natalie Littlehales, marketing manager at Brintons says, “Wool is inherently fire and stain-resistant plus has hypo-allergenic and antibacterial properties – so can even make the air we breathe cleaner.”

Brintons are proud supporters of the British wool industry, (the wool from one in nine British sheep ends up in one of its carpets) and work closely with organisations such as British Wool and Campaign for Wool (a global initiative set up by the Prince of Wales).

With quality and durability boxes both ticked, the next things to consider are heritage and style. Brintons have held a Royal Warrant since 1958, been making carpets for two hundred years and worked with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, David Linley and Laura Ashley. They also have one of the largest pattern libraries in the world, containing sketches by artists like Marion Dorn and Matisse. Each new collection has a unique individuality; you’ll find yourself drawn to modern dots and checks, subtle patterns and bold botanicals. And of course the plains, which are anything but.

Whatever you want for your interior, Brintons will deliver on craftsmanship, quality, heritage and design. But best of all, you’ll love walking on it.
