History

    Innovation from tradition

    Thomas Trenkamp established Carpet Concept Objekt-Teppichboden GmbH in 1993 in Bielefeld. The Rhinelander has been an expert for commercially used carpets for more than 20 years and has excellent knowledge of the market. In collaboration with partners, among them designers, architects, fitters in the contract sector and other professionals involved in construction, he conceives new products from an integral point of view. The company’s innovative strength is the basis for the achieved international success and the more than 80 design awards the products have won.

    Since 2004, Carpet Concept has made sure to meet today’s high demands on product quality and design by operating a company-owned weaving mill in Thuringia. The carpet factory in Münchenbernsdorf looks back on a long-standing tradition in the production of textiles; with the increasing success of the company, it has become the centre of product development. Here, new products are designed, tested, corrected, and finished with great passion and love for detail. In the carefully refurbished brick building dating from the 1930s, the company works with both state-of-the-art weaving technology and traditional craftsmanship. Additionally, the ensemble accommodates a museum on the history of weaving, an exceptional conference and exhibition area as well as the ‘Weaving Kitchen’ for joint cooking events.
