Custom orders

Homes have different sizes and the standard sized rug is not always the best fit in your interior decoration. Did you know that VM Carpet can provide rugs according to your own measurements. The maximum width is four meters and the length can vary up to 30 m. Besides custom sizes custom shapes are also possible.

The custom sizes are possible thanks to the unique EVAPOLYTEX backing of VM Carpet. It makes the rugs un-slippery, solid and flexible. The backing doesn’t contain latex and doesn’t stain the floors either. It is odorless and suits all floor surfaces – also those with radiant heating.

Our story

Arto and Aila Viita-aho founded a rug factory in 1973. The same friendly and honest yet innovative approach is still behind the manufacture of VM-Carpet’s rugs.

In 1975, Arto Viita-aho and his friend Harri Kujala decided to buy wefts for rugs from Sweden for their newly opened rug factory. 

Thanks to his skills in Swedish, Harri Kujala got to place the calls. The first one was connected by the switchboard operator to the local police office. The next call ended up at a furniture store called Ikea. They had no wefts, but smooth talker Harri sold his first large order almost right there.

This is the road the company is still travelling. The same friendly and joyful yet careful, honest and innovative attitude is the drive behind VM-Carpet’s rugs even today.

The people behind our rugs and carpets

At VM Carpet, we make rugs and carpets straight from the heart. An expertly designed and beautifully finished product and a satisfied customer are a matter of honour to us. We are proud of our work – and with good reason. We weave authenticity, humanity and Finnish nature into each rug we make.

The roots of our family business date back to 1973 when Aila and Arto Viita-aho started a carpet weavers’ shop in a neighbour’s disused cowshed. Today, the carpet factory’s daily life includes many different working stages from the manufacture of paper yarn to dyeing to weaving and backing and, finally, cutting and finishing.

Our rugs and carpets are the result of excellent cooperation, with every step as important as the next and every employee playing a crucial role. Our expertise is complemented by highly talented Finnish textile designers, many of whom have created inspirational themes for us for several years. VM Carpet’s employees are a part of our family. They have worked for us for years, and our longest-standing employees have been with us for more than 30 years, some of them following in their parents’ footsteps.

Our heart – and our production – beats in Lappajärvi. Our family business is located by the shores of Lake Lappajärvi and makes rugs to size. We have an office and several production facilities around the lake. You can find some of our experts in the Helsinki metropolitan area at the VM Carpet Outlet, which is located in the district of Tammisto in Vantaa. We love meeting people and serving our customers in a flexible way all across Finland.

An expertly designed and beautifully finished product and a satisfied customer are a matter of honour to us.
