We are excited to launch the refreshed edition of our multi level loop pile carpet tile collection, osaka®.

osaka® is created using Universal Fibers® ground-breaking Thrive® matter yarn, the world’s first carbon negative recycled yarn, and our unique BioBase™ recycled backing – making osaka® carbon neutral. The environmental benefits to the range, using Thrive® matter, contribute to carbon reduction projects across the globe. This reduction of C02 in the atmosphere, paired with our eco2matters® BioBase™ recycled backing, make osaka®, another carbon neutral range for burmatex, alongside our other collection, arctic®.

First launched in 2018, osaka® has been fitted in a multitude of environments, from offices to apartment blocks.

Refreshed for 2023, osaka® is an all over pattern inspired by an incredibly vibrant, futuristic and traditional part of the world, Japan. The contrasts found in Japan inspire the range; new and old, warm and cool, urban and natural.

Initially inspired by a map of osaka® the carpet tile design is geometric yet organic, reminiscent of folded paper origami. Whether looking down on the busy metropolitan streets or up at the forest canopies, you can see the pattern of osaka® appear in both city and natural settings.


The abstract nature of the design, teamed with the revived colour palette, allows it to be both soft and strong, expertly working with any modern interior space.


The refreshed palette of 12 includes trend inspired luminous pastels (gingko, chiru, kawa) a bright and joyful red (hanabi), two fresh and calming blues (kori and sora) and a new pure warm (hikari). The range maintains is set of core greys and beige; mochi, arashi, sesame and sumi.
