In 1924 P.J. Van Heugten and his wife started in Amersfoort with the manufacture of saddle covers and cycling gloves. After buying a needle felt machine for the production of jute underlay, they commenced producing 1.5 m wide rolls of hair felt carpet with a bitumen backing in the early 1950s.

The first wall to wall carpet that could be laid loose!
