There are many factors to consider when selecting carpet for your home. Budget, use, style, colour and ease of cleaning, just to name a few. One of the more commonly asked questions is where the product is made as consumers are increasingly wanting to understand the origin of their new flooring. Many of the carpets at Flooring Xtra are manufactured right here within our shores, providing an abundance of options for those who have Australian made high on their list of priorities. If this sounds like you and you’re on the hunt for new carpet, here are some for you to choose from.

 

Wool and wool blend carpets made in Australia

Textured wool loop pile carpets are incredibly popular and for good reason. They feel fantastic underfoot, they are interesting and textured in appearance and they are naturally excellent insulators. The good news is, is that many of them are also Australian made. Within the Wooly range, Antique Archways, Saltbox Fair, Classic Deco and Native Elegance provide unique, warm and tasteful ranges, all manufactured here. Urban Instinct ranges also provide lots of options with Tallinn, Montauk Point, Oxford Park and Henrhyd Falls also made in Oz.
