Edel Telenzo has been selling carpets in the UK since the 1970s but the company’s roots go back to 1918 when the E de Langes (Edel) and Zoons started to produce rush matting in Genemuiden in Northern Holland.
After the Second World War, rush was replaced by the more hard wearing coir fibre. But by the late 1960s, the company realised that its future lay in finding a niche with the then new technology of tufting and making the most of the growing consumer enthusiasm for wall-to-wall carpeting.
Edel Telenzo Carpets today is part of the Edel International group of companies and is benefiting from the group’s continued investment in research, design, development and production technology and services, producing quality products that are especially made for a demanding market. Great attention is paid to factors such as ease of maintenance, durability, colour fastness and light resistance, anti-static and fire-proof properties.
All production takes place under one roof – allowing for a quick response to customer and market demands. The company manufacturers its own synthetic fibre in its own extrusion plant, producing solution dyed fibres that guarantee fast colours and easy stain removal. Dying, steaming washing, cleaning and drying; winding, and twisting are all carried out using highly automated processes and latest technology. All carpet backing – whether actionbac, gelbac or jute – is also carried out in house. The latest tufting machines are used to create the carpets themselves. The company’s background in weaving with natural fibre stood it in good stead when it came to developing special tufted wool qualities. It was one of the first companies to develop qualities with a multi-ply yarn system.
