Shuttleworth Weaving is a family business which creates bespoke and a standard range of, hand-crafted carpets and rugs. We do all the spinning, weaving and dyeing by hand. Our thorough and professional approach to the design and hand-weaving processes appeals to clients both locally and internationally. 

The majority of our carpets and rugs are made from the best natural materials available to us (eg: South African mohair and Namibian Karakul wool). In addition, we work with jute and polypropylene.

Over the years, we have created original designs, weaves, and techniques. We are always experimenting with new weaves and mixing the different fibres for exciting effects and to create a range of textures.

We dye the materials onsite, creating beautiful colours and colour effects. We can match just about any colour required for custom pieces. We can create large-format custom rugs of up to nine metres wide.  

We create unique and beautiful handwoven rugs.

The Wool Ranges

Fine Weave Wool: This is a neat, tightly woven and durable carpet. Each carpet is designed then the yarn hand-dyed, spun and woven.

Tenfour Wool: This is a rug handwoven from two thicknesses of New Zealand carpet wool which creates even textured ridges and colour contrast. The use of only two colours creates a subtle, modern architectural look. 

Karakul Wool & Jute: This rug is made from Namibian Karakul wool and just a little jute in order to create an even texture. The yarn is handspun.

    Shuttleworth Weaving
    This #HeritageDay we celebrate our founders, Helen and Andy Shuttleworth. They have lived in Fort Nottingham for more than 40 years, having settled on a hilltop surrounded by indigenous forests. Andy and Helen have both retired from the day-to-day running of the business, so Robert, (their son) and his wife, Julia, now lead Shuttleworth Weaving. We are proud of our Handwoven #heritage and approach. We remain skilled crafters who take pride in creating items that become Family Heirlooms. Every product is made by hand, in the traditional way. ... See MoreSee Less
