Producing some of the world’s most luxurious marine carpets since 2012
SYLKA™ has gained a reputation for designing, producing and installing elegant carpets and rugs into some of the world’s most prestigious yachts and vessels.
With considerable experience working within the marine sector over many years, we have assisted high-profile boat builders and marine interior designers of vessels from 20 metres to 100 metres plus.
We take great pride in the service we offer – going above and beyond to deliver outstanding designs.
SYLKA™ and NuSilk™
SYLKA™ is made with the innovative NuSilk™ fibre system – making it ideal for a wide range of Marine applications.
Although delicate and luxurious to touch, the micro-fibre from which NuSilk™ is derived makes SYLKA™ extremely durable and hardwearing.
We have wide selection of standard ranges to choose from, which over the years have been specified by high-profile boat builders and marine interior designers.
SYLKA™ Hand-Tufted is the next step in luxury and allows for the creation of completely bespoke handmade rugs and carpets.
Sharing the same wonderful lustre that SYLKA™ is world-renowned for, Hand-Tufted carpets offer interior designers and boat builders the ability to develop one-off pieces to suit each project.
Hand-Tufted carpets are created by highly skilled artisans, who spend hours meticulously ensuring that every carpet and rug meets the very highest standards.
These designs are also anti-allergenic, hardwearing and versatile. With Hand-Tufted carpets you can specify bespoke colours and designs, creating a unique look, while having the durability to take on the rigours of everyday life.
Our bespoke customised rugs are suitable for placing on any hard surface or on top of soft floor coverings on board a vessel.
Each rug is made to order using your personal choice of carpet style and border trim.
We have a huge range of materials to choose from, ensuring the result is a unique piece that is totally your own creation.
Rugs can be made to any size or shape and we can cut and precision stitch the rug and border to ensure it meets your specific dimensions.
Pricing and surveys
We aim to make obtaining an initial budget for a project as simple and stress-free as possible.
Once we know what type of carpet you require and have a drawing of the vessel showing the areas that require carpets, we can provide an estimated cost for the carpet, installation, shipping and all sundry items.
We can then arrange for one of our surveyors to conduct a full on-site survey to give a fixed price – it’s as simple as that!
All of our Carpet Planners and Fitters are employed directly by our company, ensuring we retain total control of their work.
To ensure high standards are met, all of our installation teams serve at least seven years of training, which is done in-house alongside our own highly knowledgeable team of fitters.
Our installers understand exactly what we expect from them to give our clients a high-quality finish, that is completed on time and on budget.
We also provide the same service for crew areas.
We insist on using Cloud9 IMO approved underlay to ensure that all installations conform to IMO regulations.
Acoustic, high-impact, sound-proof underlays are available in various thicknesses to give the best performance from noise and vibration.
Pride in our service
We pride ourselves on the service we provide from the initial consultation to the final installation.
Unlike most of our competitors or other suppliers, we do everything in-house or alongside our close partners.
All of our installers serve a seven-year apprenticeship, so when it comes to the final product being installed, we are confident that you will be delighted with the results.
What Our Clients Say
We would like to thank you and your team for the dedication and passion to the product you sell, the way the installation was carried out with noticeable profound knowledge of the product. You helped us every step of the way, from the tough decision of colours and textures, of physical installation and after sale. It is hard to find serious and honest people in the yachting service industry that deliver what was promised and for reasonable price. We appreciate you as the English gentlemen that you are and look forward to working with you in the future. We highly recommend you to any other client.
Four seasons on and we are delighted with how this carpet has performed. Guests love the feel of the carpet underfoot and crew find it easy to keep clean and maintain. The sales team made it an easy choice (very efficient) their installers were highly skilled and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sylka carpets and Borderline – great service – great product.
As always, the attention to detail and communication during quotation phases was prompt and transparent enabling us to know exactly at what stage we were at, at any given time. Costs were negotiated with professionalism and confidence leading onto a stress-free installation completed in a realistic time frame. I look forward to working with them again at some point in the future.
Thank you for your professionalism, punctuality and great work! It has been a pleasure to work with Steve, Malcolm and the team. They are very responsive, understand our needs and they respected the deadline, which we very much appreciated. The carpets are a beautiful quality and we couldn’t have wished for a more impeccable work.
