Nice Rug!

We have been working with Hampshire County Council Children's Centres recently. For this Lizzie produced a range of canvasses and huge bright rugs to make the centres a fun and inspiring environment for everyone who uses them! Yesterday Izzy visited Axminster Carpets to see the rugs being made. The factory was a sea of brown wools and traditional rugs, then right in the corner a beautiful bright Peagreen rainbow.....whoah!

The "Paw" section being woven on a beautiful old machine which was installed at the factory in 1937.... still going strong thanks to the care and love of Axminsters' loyal engineers!
