Type of Carpet & Construction
Types of Carpet & Styles
The manufacturing of carpet (carpet styles/type of carpet) - which can be described as sewing strands of yarn into a backing material - creates thousands of yarn loops.
When the loops are cut, we create a CUT PILE carpet, often known as PLUSH or texture carpet and even friezes.
When the loops remain uncut, we create a LOOP carpet.
These two options can be combined to create various CONSTRUCTION possibilities:
Cut Pile Carpet
When the loops are cut, you create a cut pile carpet.
Loop Pile Carpet
When the loops remain uncut, you create a loop pile carpet.
Patterned Loop Carpet
When the loops remain uncut and the loops have multiple heights, the result is a patterned loop carpet.
Cut & Loop Carpet
When cuts and loops are combined, you can create a wide range of patterns.
