Drawing inspiration from a Turkish carpet he saw in a London marketplace, Whitty decided to utilize his skills as a cloth-weaver to manufacture his own. After several months of work, he completed the first of many Axminster Carpets in 1755. By the mid-18th century, these carpets became so popular and fashionable, they attracted the attention of wealthy aristocrats who commissioned Thomas' works to furnish their homes and various estates. The architects decorating these houses would often design the carpet to match the scheme of the room and often chose Whitty as the manufacturer. His work garnered such significant recognition that King George III and Queen Charlotte purchased his products and even visited the factory! This English ca. 1765 Axminster Carpet is quite a popular item in our gallery. Measuring at 18'-1" x 13' 2", this carpet features an ivory field with a tracery design of blue, surrounded by decorative floral sprays and bordered by mud brown spandrels enclosed by a narrow charcoal floral guardstripe.
