ANTA’s rugs and carpets are made from flat-woven carpet, a type of traditional flooring revived by Anta in the 1980s.
The carpet was developed after Lachlan Stewart had conducted an architectural survey of the MacLeod’s famous Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye. There he discovered a fragment of heavy flat-weave tweed that had been made long ago by the tenants of the MacLeod-owned island of St Kilda in the Outer Hebrides. It was made in lieu of rent and used to carpet the castle. This fragment of wonderfully coloured flat-weave inspired Annie Stewart to make the first of the ANTA carpets.
ANTA have been making these carpets ever since, using wool sourced from the Western Isles, and developed a wide range of designs that work well in both historical and contemporary interiors.
ANTA’s pure wool carpet is coated with Teflon. This provides a level of stain resistance and makes it easier to clean.
We stock, sell, supply, & fit ANTA’s products in Bridge of Allan and throughout Central Scotland.
