Victoria Carpets

Victoria Carpets Limited was founded in 1895 in the Scottish town of Kirkcaldy. The company began trading as a small tapestry and printing operation from premises in Victoria Street - hence the distinctive name. The company founders were three enterprising partners - George Anton, Alexander Hamilton and John Johnson - who subsequently looked further afield for the development of the business, eventually deciding on Kidderminster, Britain's premier carpet manufacturing town.

In 1900, therefore, the weaving plant was relocated from Scotland to the Worcestershire town - the mill being situated on the River Stour, which was used as a source of power.   Even then, staff loyalty was at a premium. The story goes that many of the company's employees actually walked the whole distance from Kirkcaldy to Kidderminster in order to keep their jobs when the plant moved.
