Wilton Carpet: Perfect for Automotive Use


Founded over 400 years ago and manufactured in the UK, every roll of carpet has been traditionally woven using British wool as it is considered the best for its blend of resilience and recovery contributing to its ability to withstand heavy use, and with their patterned designs will remain looking good and in great condition however  much wear and tear they get. 

Take a look at our premium quality carpet suitable for automotive upholstery and particularly useful for Classic Cars. Produced with an 80% Wool, 20% Nylon composite, we currently provide two ranges: ‘Wilton’ and ‘Wilton W’. Learn the differences and take a look at our Wilton products or request any samples below.
