Carpet and Rug Industry

In North America, the Stuart Hurlbert Company represents Sidlaw Trading of Scotland, long time suppliers of high quality JUTE backing yarns for woven carpets.


Sidlaw yarns are the standard worldwide for Wilton and Axminster carpets. Sidlaw pioneered the development of strong, smooth, and level JUTE carpet yarns, enabling weavers to increase loom speeds, and get far better production than with "regular" quality backing yarns.


Many Hurlbert products find applications in craft projects, where the coarse texture and rugged good looks of natural JUTE and FLAX yarns are appreciated.

One of the major craft markets we serve is FLAX and JUTE backing fabrics used across the continent in making hand hooked rugs.
