Nouwens Carpets, proudly local carpet manufacturers, make use of their more than 50 years of experience to ensure that they offer the best-quality, locally produced products. According to the company, when it comes to carpet manufacturing, resources and equipment are rather limited within the South African market.

For this reason Nouwens Carpets have had to “go it alone” and develop their own manufacturing processes and solutions. Having had to supply their own manufacturing materials, they therefore now operate as a vertically integrated mill that produces its own spun yarns for the domestic market. This enables them to control the entire manufacturing process ensuring that their final products are of the very best quality possible, rivalling those of international competitors.

Despite the changing markets, the many other alternative flooring options available to consumers, and the fact that international competitors often have cheaper resources to draw on, Nouwens Carpets believe they remain one of the leaders in the local carpeting industry.

Minimalist flat-weave carpet sheeting and tiles provide cost-effective solutions and, when it comes to non-woven carpets, tufting and needlepunch technology has also helped to lower carpet prices.

Another example of this organisation’s ability to adapt, and its understanding of what the South African consumer needs in line with changing times, is the new Stereo range that was launched in August 2015. This range is ideal for those who are just entering the property market and who want a good-quality carpet that still carries the respected name of Nouwens Carpets known for bringing innovative, functional and breathtakingly beautiful carpets to South African homes and other spaces.
