Feltex Carpets is an Australasian carpet manufacturer, originally established in the 1920s. The company has production plants in Melbourne, Australia and many locations in New Zealand. It also has offices in New Zealand, Australia and the United States. It produces more than 25 percent of all carpet in New Zealand and Australia.

Feltex also exports to customers throughout Southeast Asia, Japan, the USA, the Middle East and other world markets.

The company's custom design facility allows Feltex to produce carpet of any specification using almost any colour combination and design. "If you can imagine it, we can create it" is the motto.

Feltex floated on the New Zealand stock exchange in 2004, but ran into financial difficulties in April 2005 after a slowdown in the Australian market. It went into receivership on September 22, 2006, after a rescue bid by Sleepyhead owners Graeme and Craig Turner failed., It was acquired as a going concern by Australian carpet manufacturer Godfrey Hirst on 3 October 2006.
