Our History

Founded in 1956 by Joseph Benardout, Thames Carpets is a name trusted for unparalleled service and expertise. The present owner, Bahram Javadi-Babreh is pictured in the article below weaving a rug on our celebrated 40th anniversary. Having worked as a carpet weaver from a young age, he has since gained invaluable expertise and experience in all areas of the carpet world. In 1980 he formed a team of world-class repairers in Lincolnshire that dealt with many prestige clients. Bahram worked regularly with Thames Carpets for many years and when Joseph’s sons, David and Cecil retired he was delighted to be given the opportunity to continue running the business. 

Bahram now runs Thames Carpets with his daughter Sofia Javadi, who has grown up with carpets. She sees them as “part of the family” and is devoted to continuing the trade of such a timeless art form.
