Carpet - Dyeing Process
Understanding the dyeing process will help you decide which carpet is best for a specific area in your home.
The majority of Shaw carpets are beck-dyed or continuous dyed, where the coloring agent is added at a certain point in the manufacturing process. In a Solution Dyed Carpet, the color is added to the yarn as it is being manufactured. This creates a fiber with outstanding colorfastness, meaning it resists fading in areas with large windows like a living room. In a Yarn Dyed Carpet, the yarn is typically manufactured and then dyed before the carpet is created. This process creates a wider range of multi-color options to allow for a variety of designs and bright colors. Regardless of your choice, the varied colors and patterns in your carpet can be used to create a distinct atmosphere in your home.
