About us

We’re proud to be part of Britain’s rich textiles heritage. Penthouse Carpets has been part of the British wool carpet industry since our founder John Hawker made his first rug over 40 years ago.

Penthouse Carpets is unusual, we’re unusually proud of the British wool carpets we create – and this is true across the business. That’s because our 80-strong workforce each owns a part of the company. We all know our success depends on our customers being as happy with our carpets as we are. When you buy a British wool carpet from Penthouse Carpets, you know you’ve bought from a company that really cares. We’re passionate about designing, making and selling high quality, beautiful carpets that set the standard for comfort, warmth and durability.

Based in Lancashire, at the foothills of the South Pennines, we manufacture British wool carpets that have been pleasing homeowners for decades. We don’t let our proud heritage get in the way of progress. As committed carpet manufacturers, we continue to research and develop our Rochdale-based factory and machinery to ensure consistently high standards in the carpets we produce. The experience, pride and expertise of our workforce means you can be confident that your Penthouse Carpet is a British wool carpet of exceptional quality.

I have been in the flooring trade for 49 years and having fitted all Penthouse carpets in every conceivable type of installation, I can honestly say I have never been disappointed with the results.M. Wilson
