Hampton Court Palace

Historic Royal Palaces were experiencing cost issues and health and safety issues with their runners throughout the visitor route.

In 2000 Linney Cooper were asked to suggest new product that would give better wear ability over the sisal product with bound edges. The Historic Royal Palaces were having to budget to replace sections andrepair others every season, and down time in not displaying all areas was disruptive.

After a long consultancy the medieval look of rush matting was copied in a heavy duty English woven wilton carpet. The one detail that was obvious in any sample that woven carpet gave a falt appearance as opposed to a textured and very obvious carpet with relief to emulate the rush effect.

Linney Cooper with the technical experience of Grosvenor Wilton, wove the wilton carpet with changing texture and complicated jacquard work gave a rough texture, thus giving a depth to the carpet that helped the design gain a 3D effect. This very heavy carpet gives great detail and effect and excellent wear ability.
