The Telenzo Story

Founded in 1918 in Genemuiden, a Dutch town with a long and rich history of carpet making, Telenzo grew through the 20th century and first introduced its innovative, high-quality carpets to the UK in the 1970s. Today, Telenzo has a special focus on textured Berber carpets in sophisticated earthy shades and subtle stripes, made either in 100% natural wool or hardwearing wool blends.
