It is believed that people have been using floor coverings to make their homes more comfortable since they began to live in shelters and caves.

Vegetation and animal skins were the extent of what was available but gradually over time people became more innovative and the earliest known example of a carpet is the Pazyryk Carpet from Siberia dated around 400 BC.

In China, India, Pakistan, Turkey and Afghanistan carpets and rugs were works of art, designed with bright colours, often of silk.

In Britain we were still choosing to cover our floors with straw and rushes right up until the 16th Century, but in 1537 Robert Roth brought weavers from the East to make rugs on his Kilkenny estate.Eventually a method was devised to mechanise the production of carpets and in 1655 a carpet factory was built by Wilton and by 1699 the Wilton Weavers received a Royal Charter.

The industry has changed and developed, embraced new techniques and methods until today there is a huge range of styles, materials and patterns available to the consumer. For all types of Carpet and Flooring in Poole call us on 01202 574 044.

Primary School Uses Supacord Carpet to Inspire Pupils
London Borough of Barnet′s new, larger version of Orion Primary School has the motto, ‘recognising the star in everyone ’. This is what inspired the design of their new carpet which lines the corridors with hundreds of stars in an array of different colours.

The school has been newly built to replace the old Orion Primary School to absorb the rise in the number of school places needed in the borough. The carpet is made from Supacord, made by the UK based fibre bonded carpet manufacturers, Heckmondwike FB. Over 2,600m2 of the Supacord carpet was supplied in carpet tiles format, in nine colours ­ violet, steel, emerald, blueberry, azure, willow, orange, graphite and purple. An additional 220 tiles in graphite were supplied with stars cut out to give the school its unique and interesting carpet.

Supacord is a popular carpet for schools, especially those who place an importance in aesthetics. It is available in 42 difference colours and is therefore the obvious choice for schools wanting to engage with their pupils through its interior design. Supacord carpet is also a popular choice for schools as it is very resilient and can withstand heavy wear and tear as well as high numbers of traffic. It is also renowned for being sustainable and has gained a BRE (Building Research Establishment) Global A+ environmental rating for use in offices, schools and retail outlets.

Marketing Manager for Heckmondwike FB, Abby Chandler explained why Supacord is a popular flooring choice with schools. ‘It is incredibly hard wearing whilst still creating the look and feel they wanted.‘ She also commented that Heckmondwike ‘were very pleased they were able to meet Orion Primary School’s floor design aspirations. They hope this may help to inspire their pupils for a long into the future.‘ Their belief was the interior decoration of a school can often help provide a more positive learning environment, in turn inspiring pupils to achieve the best they can.

With over 550 pupils, it was vital that the new carpet at Orion Primary School would be robust enough to withstand a lot of foot traffic. ‘reason for selecting this particular carpet the wide choice of available colours, allowing us to match our corporate identity while providing a positive feel to the school,‘ said Head Teacher Chris Flathers. ‘We felt it was important that the ‘Recognising the Star in everyone ’ message was part of the design, ensuring pupils are reminded of this on a daily basis.’

The entrance area of the school will also benefit from a long lasting flooring solution, with Hippo used in accordance with the Supacord flooring. This will help in maintaining the carpet in the best condition possible. It doesn′t ravel or fray and is also useful in noise reduction.
