Manx Carpets was formed on the Isle of Man in the middle of the last century. It later transferred production to mainland UK and operated out of a factory in Blackburn, Lancashire. The involvement of the Tomkinson family in carpet manufacture goes back to the mid-19th Century. Four generations of the Tomkinson family worked in the business.

In March 2005, Mr Tomkinson was acquired by Headlam plc, Europe’s largest distributor of Floorcoverings. Since then, Manx Tomkinson has re-established itself as one of the leading suppliers of Residential carpet to the UK market.

At AFS, we love that Manx Tomkinson has such a rich, family-orientated history.

Carpet Ranges

Manx Tomkinson has a fantastic range of carpets. They are spilt into three main ranges: Luxurious Wool, Easy Living and Allure. Let’s have a closer look at each of these great brands.

Luxurious Wool

A brilliant blend of comfort and luxury makes wool the perfect choice. Wool is super durable and resilient. Wool fibres are naturally superior to synthetic fibres. This is because they are longer lasting and dirt resistant. Wool is also a renewable source- making it eco-efficient!

Noise transfer from room to room is reduced due to wool’s ability to absorb sound and reduce echo. Amazingly, wool has a natural resistance to stains. This means that most spills can be cleaned just with a cloth and water!

Easy Living

This range focuses on long-lasting and durable carpets. They are the perfect option for a busy household or commercial property. All these carpets come with a lifetime stain warranty. This means you don’t have to worry about spills and splashes. These carpets are so tough, they can be cleaned with mild bleach solution. They come in a large range of colours.

These are some of the softest carpets on the market! What’s amazing about this collection is that the carpets are so soft and yet really hard-wearing. This is because they are made using a special Polyamide fibre. This combines practicality and comfort in the best way. The Allure range works beautifully in bedrooms- giving you luxurious softness underfoot. These carpets come in a wide range of colours. Try picking a neutral-toned carpet and pairing it with dark walls. This creates a very modern look.
