Full Steam Ahead for Axminster Carpets & Transpennine Express

Check out this awesome time-lapse video showing the Transpennine Express getting a full refurbishment including carpets from Axminster Carpets and fabrics from Camira fabrics…

After 6 months in the making, Axminster Carpets has produced a carpet for all 51 of the TransPennine Express fleet of Class 185 trains. The new carpet forms part of a major refurbishment of the trains, which can be seen travelling right across the North of England and Scotland.

The refurbishment was taken on by DGDESIGN in Derby, and the new carpet brings a contemporary feel through the use of an on-trend geometric pattern using shades of blue that catch the eye and perfectly complement the first class leather and standard class fabric seats.IMG_0417_1 web

“The whole Axminster team were highly supportive and responsive throughout, with superfast turnaround of PDF artwork and high quality Kibby samples for scrutiny and approval.  The can-do attitude and responsiveness is a natural fit for us and having found the process to be smooth and efficient and the end product to be of the highest quality, Axminster will continue to be valuable partner in the creation of new carpet designs”

– David Gordon, Director at DGDESIGN
