Ulster Carpets are a long-standing company with a reputation for producing carpets of the highest quality and luxury. All the time they have been established they have vowed to maintain that reputation by focusing their time on innovation, design and the pursuit of excellence. Even though they are a fairly big fish in the global world of carpets, their business still remains owned by generations of the first family members that owned the original Castleisland site in County Armagh it back in 1938.
The dedication from generations of skilled local craftsmen and women who have proudly woven Ulster carpets and their commitment to local manufacturing has ensured only the best carpets can wear the Ulster name. The whole manufacturing process is kept here in the UK, from wool processing, dyeing, weaving and then finished at Castleisland. The unrivalled quality of Ulster Carpets is down to the result of this level of control.
Not only does Ulster produce excellent carpets, they define themselves by also manufacturing stunningly designed ranges and colourways from their Kidderminster-based design team.
