What our vision is…
Every day, we strive to create a profitable business model without losing our authentic style. Our focus is always on helping customers with a personal touch. Therefore, our ultimate goal is not to be the biggest in the market, but to be the best at what we do.
What we do…
With 8 different lines of carpets, we can offer a large collection of polypropylene carpets, without losing the local family values that characterize our company. In fact, the most important activities relating to the production of our carpets and rugs take place within our company. Not only the design, but also the weaving, the finishing and the packaging are all done in our production department in Belgium.
Quality and Professionalism
Having our own design office, we can guarantee that our product lines are renewed and adapted to the latest trends every year. The creative employees within this department provide us with beautiful new designs time and time again. They not only take into account classic, but also modern interiors. The production departments are also characterized by professionalism. Carpets and rugs are produced to order. They can be provided with a personalized label and display on the packaging if required. Our products comply with the latest REACH and other regulations.
Vanhoutte Carpets puts several important values first. Of course, our focus is always the relation with our clients and our employees. Nowadays, however, we also focus on innovation and the environment.
Firstly, we attach great value to our customer-oriented focus. We are always looking for long-term relationships, encouraging contact between our management and our regular customers. Good communication is essential to us, even to the point that we use customer feedback when creating our collections. In doing so, we never lose sight of our own specific knowledge of course. To enhance this communication, we are currently working on a digital catalogue in which customers will be able to easily navigate through our extensive collection.
Secondly, our employees need to be treated correctly. To meet this requirement, we follow the ETI Base Code. This way, we have managed to assemble a motivated team.
Thirdly, we also focus on innovation. We always use the latest technologies in production. By investing in the newest machines, we can make our staff work as ergonomically as possible. We are also building a new showroom, new offices and a new digital catalogue to serve our customers even better.
Finally, we do not only talk about the environment, but actively contribute to it. For example, we can supply approximately 50% of our own energy by means of our solar panels. In addition, we also apply strict recycling rules.

De Saedeleir Textile GroupDe Saedeleir Textile Group
”More than 120 years of experience in innovative and ecological textile solutions.”
De Saedeleir Textile Group (DSTG) is a family-owned business, established in the 19th century. With more than 120 years of experience, we design, develop and produce a wide range of innovative and ecological textile solutions for a wide variety of clients. What began in the early 20th century as a small business specializing in the collection and recycling of industrial waste materials including metals, rags and textiles, steadily developed into a globally-renowned manufacturer of needlepunched non-wovens.
Our history in a nutshell:
Late 19th century
Damiaan De Saedeleir, founding father of De Saedeleir Textile Group, starts trading as a small entrepreneur in the waste collection business. He collects, sorts and trades in rags and metals.
Early 20th century
Damiaan’s sons Pascal and Florent take over their father’s business and specialise in pulling the collected textiles and selling the raw fibres to textile companies in Flanders. The group now operates out of three locations in the village of Lebbeke.
Mid 20th century
Soon after World War II, DSTG begins to concentrate on collecting textile waste and regenerated fibres due to a shortage of raw materials. A third
generation of De Saedeleir brothers enter the business as Leo and Jean help their father to expand the company, before assuming control.
Late 20th century
The company is now growing at a rapid rate. The three locations in Lebbeke are now too small to cope, so DSTG moves to a 200,000m² industrial site in the nearby city of Dendermonde. Here they begin the production of polypropylene and polyester fibres, a European first at that time. DSTG is now aiming for global expansion under the new and dynamic management of the fourth generation of the family: Patrick, Pascal, Dirk and Kris De Saedeleir.
Early 21st century
DSTG expands globally by taking ownership of French textile company Sommer Needlepunch, which becomes an important part of the group. This takeover expands the product range significantly, enabling DSTG to explore new markets. Further growth follows with the launch of sales and service offices in the UK (Sommer Flooring Ltd), US (Sommer Flooring Inc), the Netherlands and Belgium (Cover Flooring NL/BE), while DS Fibras is launched in Mexico to serve the local automotive market.
