Here at Sargeant Carpets we have a number of suppliers we use regularly, and wanted to dig a little deeper into their ranges for customers to have as much information as possible to help choose which to use in their home.
Our first supplier spotlight features Cormar Carpets, whose carpets we have been recommending for 30 years. They are one of our preferred suppliers and have supported us fantastically throughout the challenges that the past year has presented, including yarn shortages in the wider world. It’s great to be able to showcase this family-run British business which was one of the pioneers of tufted carpets.
