Our History

Even in the Middle Ages, Flemish textile products have an excellent reputation throughout Europe. Everyone envies the talent of the Flemish weavers. Nobody is their equal in combining beauty and quality.

Within this world of know-how and creativity the great Flemish carpet tradition grows. The beautiful city of Kortrijk, cradle of Louis De Poortere, becomes the center of this industry.

Each project is another step, each step is another conquest…

When Louis De Poortere established in Kortrijk the company, he named after himself, he can rely on the solid experience acquired since 1859 by the family company De Poortere Freres, cloth manufacturers and merchants.

But Louis De Poortere’s innate desire for innovation forces him to explore new horizons.

He starts designing carpets with Oriental patterns which immediately enchant the British market.

Year after year, Louis De Poortere carries on with his innovations: he diversifies his collections, explores new production techniques and multiplies his creations.

Staying ahead in technology. To have complete creative freedom… Louis De Poortere has always provided all the necessary means to create.

As innovator, designer and pioneer, Louis De Poortere characterizes his company with his desire for progress. Thanks to its high technology, Louis De Poortere already lives in the future.

Its extensive machinery, which masters the most advanced techniques, enables the company to offer the world’s most diversified range of products.

Our Mission

La mission de Louis De Poortere …


Louis De Poortere dispose de ses propres sites de production en Belgique. Nos usines produisent au total plus d’un million de mètres carrés de tapis chaque année. Cela équivaut à pas moins de 200 terrains de football!

Nous avons volontairement opté pour la production dans nos propres usines car nous souhaitons contrôler l’ensemble du processus.


Depuis notre entrepôt à Mouscron, en Belgique, à la frontière française, nous sommes en mesure de servir rapidement des clients partout dans le monde grâce à des processus de distribution performants.

Eye catching designs

Afin de continuer à atteindre nos objectifs, nous nous concentrons sur le renouvellement et l’innovation. D’une part, cela signifie que nous sommes constamment engagés dans la recherche de tendances et que nous parcourons toujours le monde à la recherche de nouvelles idées. Nos designs de tapis sont toujours à la mode. D’autre part, l’innovation joue un rôle majeur dans les processus de production et de distribution. Par exemple, dans la production, nous utilisons des machines modernes ainsi que des machines traditionnelles adaptées avec des technologies modernes, l’impression numérique associée à une technique de tissage artisanale et les dernières techniques de tissage, de tuftage et de nouage. De cette façon, nous maintenons les coûts de production aussi bas que possible et nous limitons notre empreinte écologique au minimum.


Soucieux de l’environnement, Louis De Poortere cherche constamment à réduire son impact écologique en recyclant ses matières et en utilisant des matériaux recyclables pour ses produits et ses emballages.


The Louis De Poortere philosophy is based on a simple concept : we aim to be more than just a manufacturer of carpets.

In branching into home decorating, we have had to increase our creativity to meet your esthetic requirements, and this has stimulated us to transform generic into magic.

Because people are increasingly seeking beauty, elegance, value and comfort for their homes, our designers and technicians have created entire collections that are modern and accessible, and designed to bring you the upmost pleasure.

Because your demands are becoming increasingly specific and your tastes more assured, we have developed bold concepts that are simple and attractive and will enable you to easily reach ultimate sophistication in your floorcovering.

At Louis De Poortere you will find rugs, carpets, stair runners and even border rugs, which you could freely mix and match to make your decorating “home sweet home” experience a pleasure.

Our passion is to offer you this pleasure.
