Our History


Grosvenor Wilton is one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious independent carpet manufacturers with a heritage spanning over 200 years. The ethos of quality and innovation lives on in a legacy of authenticity, classical English design and craftsmanship sustained by continuous investment in the latest design and production technology.

Founded in Kidderminster by Benjamin Grosvenor in 1790, the company remained within the family for the next 150 years.

Today, Grosvenor Wilton works with some of the most prestigious names in both the UK and abroad, creating exceptional carpets for stately homes, historic palaces, period houses, commercial venues and private residences, where Wilton carpet is recognised as the truly authentic carpet construction. Bespoke installations have included the following:

  • Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln
  • Charles Dickens Museum, London
  • Buckingham Palace, London
  • Sets for ITV’s Downton Abbey
  • The Mansion House, London
  • Balmoral Castle
  • Government House, Melbourne, Australia
  • Stage Set for the musical Mary Poppins (New York)

The vast archive of wholly original designs available to the company – from Georgian and Victorian, to Art Nouveau and Retro – not only enables us to faithfully reproduce carpets of any era, but also to interpret the spirit and opulence of a bygone age with unique new designs.

Using traditional Wilton looms, Grosvenor Wilton luxury floor coverings are woven with premium quality wool and wool rich blends using fine worsted or woollen yarns, linen and other effect yarns.

Beautiful and durable carpets, stair runners and rugs can be created to precise, bespoke specification.
