Brintons first began weaving in Kidderminster, Worcestershire in 1783 and has been at the forefront of quality woven floorcoverings since. In September 2011, The Carlyle Group, one of the worlds’ largest global alternative asset managers, showed their confidence in the Brintons brand by their acquisition of business and backing management plans for growth.
