Firth Carpets at Huddersfield Town FC

As avid Huddersfield Town supporters we celebrated in style when they were promoted at the end of May by delving into the Firth Carpets archives to find this edition of ‘Tuned In’, circa Summer 1994.

Huddersfield Town’s stadium had just been built, and Firth Carpets had the honour of supplying the carpets in their new ‘Kirklees Stadium’.
There was confusion at the time, however, as Firth Carpets did not understand why a football stadium wanted a custom designed and manufactured carpet featuring a fish design, which can be seen in the enlarged image below. We put our queries to one side however and produced this beautiful heavy contract 80%wool/20%nylon Axminster carpet for the reception, restaurant, bar and en-suite function areas.
When it had been fitted we did ask ‘why the fish?’
It turns out that it is not a fish design as everyone thought, but three people with their hands in the air cheering along Huddersfield Town or celebrating a win for the home team!

We have supported Huddersfield Town FC for many years, and wish them all the very best for their upcoming season in the Premiership!

Celebrating the History of a Yorkshire based Company

Firth Carpets is a well known brand that he been based in Yorkshire for nearly 200 years, but do you know the history?
Firth Carpets was originally founded in 1822 by Edwin Firth, the son of a Heckmondwike cloth finisher. The company passed from father to son until 1921 reaching its peak just after the 2nd world war. At its height of popularity, Firth Carpets were visited by thousands of people including the Prime Minister John Major in 1990 and even had Royal visitors! Despite continual innovation and investment, including several changes of ownership, however, Firth closed in 2002 and quite a lot of the old mill was demolished.
In 2009 the Firth brand was revived by Michael Rooney, a former director of the Company, determined to recreate the quality and service traditions of the original organisation. Firth Carpets is located at the heart of the original Clifton Mill site and the passion and manufacturing of beautiful, luxurious carpets and flooring still lives on today.
Leeds Beckett University recently rediscovered the history of Firth Carpets which was displayed an exhibition and featured in local newspapers, the Huddersfield Examiner and the Brighouse Echo.
To celebrate our Yorkshire heritage, we recently launched our ‘Dales Collection‘, with natural tones and three beautiful designs with Yorkshire dale names; Swaledale, Wharfedale and Lonsdale.
Happy Yorkshire Pudding Day to all our fellow Yorkshiremen and women on the 5th February!
