How did Kelly’s carpet look in the summer?
Posted October 09, 2018 09:42:56 Kelly’s famous carpet has been used for a couple of seasons in the UK, but it appears the iconic design may be coming back to Australia once again.
The carpet was first worn in the 1970s, and was the subject of a popular Australian TV series that aired in the late 1980s.
In an interview with Melbourne radio station 9NEWS, Kelly’s manager Craig Tapp described the carpet as a “really, really great piece of Australian furniture”.
“They’re pretty big and they’re very well made, they’re durable and they have that sort of look that’s associated with Kelly’s,” Tapp said.
“There’s nothing like it anywhere else.”
“I think it’s great that they’re returning to Australia and having a resurgence in popularity.”
Tapp told 9NEWS he was looking forward to Kelly’s return, which would be a significant change for the carpet’s history.
“It’s a little bit bittersweet to be honest,” Tapper said.
