Axminster is a fine carpet weave originating from the town of Axminster, England in the 1700s. Axminster provides tremendous flexibility by offering up to 16 colors in a carpet. One end of the yarn is tied to a spool for each tuft in the design. This allows for very intricate design work, making an Axminster carpet suitable for the hospitality market. As the loom is operated, one bracket at a time is lowered and the yarn strands are inserted into the carpet face. The yarn is caught between the warp threads and bound tightly by the weft. The yarn ends are turned up and trimmed by a giant shear to create the desired carpet pile.
