The Westex Story

Based in West Yorkshire, right at the heart of England’s wool and textile industry, Westex Carpets have been designing and manufacturing premium quality carpets for over 40 years. This iconic British brand was founded in 1977 by a master dyer who wanted to give customers the choice of more colours and a variety of qualities when buying a carpet. Combining technical know-how and expert craftsmanship with their industrial heritage, Westex continue to uphold their reputation for outstanding luxury flooring, found in domestic and commercial properties, both here in the UK and overseas, as well as stately homes and the lavishly decorated Royal Yacht Britannia.


Why we love Westex

  • Made in Britain - All Westex carpets are made in the UK in their own dyehouses, so they can personally ensure that every single carpet meets their high standards at each stage of production, from design to dyeing to delivery.
  • Superb Performance - Every Westex carpet is stain resistant to most water-based and oil-based stains, and has also been given a mothproofing and anti-dust mite treatment to prevent deterioration and provide protection, so your carpet always looks as good as new.
  • Lots of Choice - There are many different options to choose from: a bank of 120 colours, two materials (80/20 wool nylon or 100% wool), two- or three-fold yarns, and five widths (ranging from 1 metre to 5 metres), as well as a spectrum of qualities with varying pile heights and tuft densities to suit lots of different spaces.
  • Bespoke Colours - They also offer a special colour-matching service if you can’t find the exact carpet colour you’re looking for. They can dye your carpet to match the grass at Wimbledon or your dog’s fur - the possibilities are endless!
  • Premium Wools - They use premium wools from around the world for a superior finish and long-lasting performance.
  • Environmentally Conscious - Westex are continuously evaluating and improving their sustainability in relation to the community and the planet. So far, they have achieved a 10% per year reduction of their carbon footprint through efficient energy and transport management, and in 2015, they became 100% recyclable with 0% of their process waste going to landfill.
