Our Story

Our Story

Bayliss began in 1938 when Jack Bayliss established a carpet business in Melbourne, importing handmade carpet from northern India and Axminister carpet from England. 

Jack's son Alan and his wife, Margaret joined the company in the early 1960's. Alan and Margaret made the decision to introduce hand-made rugs from India and China and as the demand grew so did the business.

In the 1980's Jeff and David came into the business and Daryl in the early 1990's. Using the strengths of a close knit family, the business has expanded by creating new rug trends and a continual focus on being innovative.

Now the business is run by the third generation, Daryl and Jeff, and currently has 3 trade showrooms in Australia; Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
