Carpet Types & Styles


The manufacturing of carpet (carpet styles) - 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.
