Carpet information and links

  • A Carpet is a textile floor covering typically consisting of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing.
  • The pile was traditionally made from wool, but since the 20th century, synthetic fibers such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester are often used, as these fibers are less expensive than wool.
  • Carpets are used in industrial and commercial establishments such as retail stores and hotels and in private homes.
  • Today, a huge range of Carpets and rugs are available at many price and quality levels, ranging from inexpensive, synthetic Carpets that are mass-produced in factories and used in commercial buildings to costly hand-knotted wool rugs that are used in private homes.
  • Wall-to-wall Carpet is distinguished from rugs or mats, which are loose-laid floor coverings, as wall-to-wall Carpet is fixed to the floor and covers a much larger area.
