For over 25 years we have been making and selling our glorious textured floor coverings.
Behind the scenes there is a dedicated team of people who care.
Our brand ethos is the pillar of everything we do and this stems from our Marketing team. Digital Marketing is looked after by Kirsty Barton, while Lorna Haigh, our creative brand leader, is our ambassador for all things Alternative, sustainable, ethical and fun. Lorna is often quoted in various publications and can be heard in numerous podcasts and seminars championing the textile flooring industry. Keen that Alternative supports young creative talent, she has supported design competitions alongside the Campaign for Wool and British Wool and is a strong advocate of British manufacturing.

"We inspire people to express their personality with our designs and want everyone – retailers, clients, designers and suppliers to feel happy about our work together. We’re unconventional, playfully disruptive, after all, choosing flooring should be fun."
Lorna Haigh, Interiors Monthly
