Why choose a wool carpet?
For a top quality carpet, it doesn't come better than wool. Wool is an incredible material. Natural, durable and soft, a wool carpet has so many benefits for the modern home. At Birmingham carpet & flooring gallery we’re passionate about helping you make the best choice of carpet for your home. And because wool dyes well, we offer you a range of rich colours to suit the style of your location.
The natural springiness of wool helps keep your wool carpets resilient over time and extends their good looks. Your wool carpet will help prevent slips and provides a softer landing if anyone takes a tumble; perfect for homes with small children.
Why buy Sisal?
Practical and durable, sisal gives you plenty of exciting ways to create a new look for your living space. Its natural fibres readily take on vegetable dyes, offering you beautiful colour blends or solid tones which you can use to plan your new decorating scheme.
Grown in Africa and South America, sisal yarn then travels to China to be made into these creative floorcoverings so you really will be bringing a piece of the world into your home.
