Carpet Construction

Types & Styles

The manufacturing 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.

When the loops remain uncut, we create a LOOP carpet.

These two options can be combined to create four CONSTRUCTION possibilities:

Cut Pile

When the loops are cut, you create a cut pile carpet.

When the loops remain uncut, you create a loop pile carpet.

Patterned Loop

When the loops remain uncut and the loops have multiple heights, the result is a patterned loop carpet.

When cuts and loops are combined, you can create a wide range of patterns.
