The place name that gave rise to the Axminster carpet came from England. Axminster is based on the oriental carpet knitting method, which involves mechanically cutting the velvet yarn to a predetermined length and consolidating it into a “u” or “J” shape that is buried between the carpet warp layers before being fixed by the weft yarn to prevent the heavy yarn from dragging on the carpet’s back. There is no velvet carpet or cut velvet in Axminster.
