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
Solution Dyed Nylon carpets, or SDN are tough, family-friendly carpets without compromising on style or feel. Soft underfoot and a breeze to maintain SDN is the fibre of choice for busy homes. Grand Isles, Orsano, Salvador, Escarra and La Mira are all part of the Belleza SDN range made right here in Australia. Sanctuary Falls, Winter Solstice, Long Sojourn, Escarra, Pebble Gorge and Zephyr Cove are all SND designs within the Soul Elements range also manufactured on Australian soil.

Polypropylene, polyester and Triexta fibre carpets made in Australia
There are many other man-made fibres that carpet can be constructed from, each of them worthy of mention! They are often budget-conscious, family and pet friendly and easy to clean and maintain. A perfect solution for those who want a carefree option at home. Triexta is a hardy, easy-to-care-for fibre that is suitable for high-traffic areas. The Eco+ range includes Corfu, Rhodes and Andros and Aegean Isle. All are made from Triexta and all Australian carpets. Polyester carpets made in Australia include Elkhorn, Bass Cove and Camelia Drive. Polyester is luxurious to walk across and a suitable option for asthma sufferers. Polypropylene is affordable, stain-resistant and hard-wearing. For Australian carpet options, try Tarlo River, Akuna and Cedar Falls.
