Ege Carpets was founded by Mads Eg Damgaard in 1938 in Herning, Denmark. In the years to come, the production took place in a small building with only one tufting loom. Mads Eg Damgaard was visionary.
His philosophy was uncompromising: he used only the latest and most advanced technology in carpet production and he was not afraid to challenge convention. His philosophy still survives at Ege Carpets.
