Types of Carpets – II
Posted by Konstantin at January 2nd, 2015
Here is the promised second installment of our previous article, Types Of Carpets – I . Without further ado, let us dive right into the other types of weaving carpet that we haven’t looked into yet.
Loop pile carpets maintain exceptional appearance since there are no exposed yarn tips and only the sides of the yarn are exposed to wear and stress. In general, loop pile carpets perform better under heavy traffic. Olefin is often used to make area rugs (something that is commonly made using a woolen fiber). It is also commonly used to make a looped berber style carpet. A looped berber style carpet is simply a carpet woven in looped patterns. The term ‘berber’ comes from an indigenous African tribe, the Berber who created handwoven textiles using loops and knots.
This is a kind of cut pile carpet made from straight, untwisted yarn. The cut ends blend together to form a smooth, level surface. It is commonly used in formal settings such as offices or conference rooms. Due to the high density of fibres, it has a velvety finish and appearance. The low twists in the fibers allows the fibre to be plump. It is very cozy under the foot making it a great choice for the bedroom. However, the lower twists also means that its pile is easily crushed revealing indentations. Plush is not as dense as velvet but it is comfortable enough.
A cut pile carpet made with twisted yarn tufts. These tufts help in creating a textured appearance that can easily mask footprints. Commonly used for informal settings and living room decors.
Because its textured surface can camouflage marks and stains, ribbed cut is a good choice for children’s rooms or other high-traffic spaces. It can be a cut-and-loop pile or a cut-pile carpet that is trimmed in areas to create carved designs; it may also have color variations throughout. These carpets are best suited for commercial and domestic areas where they are used as area rugs. They are also used to make entrance mats. Different qualities are available having varying abilities towards handling drying capabilities.
Sisal is a type of tree and as the name suggests the carpet tries to mimic the look of sisal or some other similar plant. They release stains better and are quite soft below the feet.
