The Carpet Foundation in Kidderminster is the trade association for the UK carpet industry. It is backed by leading UK carpet manufacturers and 1000 independent retailers known as Registered Specialists.
The manufacturers produce over half the carpet made in the UK and share the same product, design and quality values.
It is widely acknowledged that the British make the best carpet in the world. UK manufacturers are synonymous with quality, craftsmanship and creativity. Testament to this is that when the best carpet is required, for example, for the White House, the Kremlin or the QE2, British carpet is chosen. Look for the Carpet Foundation Quality Mark on products from these manufacturers and you really can believe what it sys on the label!
Being a Carpet Foundation member is the only quality assurance initiative in the UK carpet industry!
The best carpet must be bought from the best retailers but how do you know that a retailer employs the best selling practices? Because when you visit a Registered Specialist you can rest assured that their selling practices have been approved by the Carpet Foundation.
Not only that, you will be supporting independent retailers who are the lifeblood of local communities and who bring expertise, choice and colour to the high street.
Registered Specialists are steeped in carpet retailing and will give sound, impartial advice, a written quotation, (so there will be no nasty surprises when the bill comes), your deposit is protected and, in the unlikely event of a problem, there is an agreed problem solving procedure which everybody adheres to.
You are in safe hands with the Carpet Foundation.
