Having created luxury, British made carpets for over 200 years, Grosvenor Wilton has created an exclusive ombre carpet using brand new manufacturing technologies for the interiors of this revolutionary car.
The Bentley EXP 100 GT looks to the future of luxury mobility, and designers were keen to use the highest quality, British made materials throughout. Being one of the only carpet brands to make British made 100% wool carpets, Grosvenor Wilton was a clear choice. Using a brand new electronic jacquard technology to create the unique ombre effect wool carpet, created exclusively for the Bentley EXP 100 GT.
Working with Bentley on such a prestigious project offered Grosvenor Wilton an exciting opportunity to combine heritage craftsmanship with modern technology. The electronic jacquard technology was created exclusively for the Bentley EXP 100 GT, and so as it was essential for the quality of the final product to be the same as our hand finished Wilton broadlooms. Ensuring the carpet yarn was dyed, woven and delivered to the prototype builder in the space of three weeks was a challenge – our normal production time is 10 weeks. There was a tremendous effort put in by all staff at Grosvenor Wilton to achieve the final carpet for the EXP 100 GT, we’re so proud to have been included in the process.
