50 Years of Bell Twist

24th February 2015

This year we are celebrating 50 years of our iconic Bell Twist series. Over the last five decades the original palette of 10 colours has increased to a collection of 50, including on-trend shades of greys, reds, blues and neutrals.

In 1993 Vivienne Westwood transformed Bell Twist carpets into iconic dresses in a campaign with Brintons. Later in 2003, renowned shoe designer Manolo Blahnik ciollaborated with Brintons on ‘The Most Luxurious Carpets in the World’ campaign.

Bell Twist’s unique depth and texture has always helped it bounce back cheerfully from the rigours of everyday life. We continue to use strong wool-rich yarn to create a permanent twist that makes this carpet a practical choice for any interior. Bell Twist is available from stock and is perfect for quick-turnaround projects where timing is of the essence.

Bell Twist colours pop up in our patterned stocked collections too making it a range that can happily be paired with the boldest damasks, stripes, florals or plaids.
