Types Of Carpets.


In most carpets, the top layer of the pile is attached to the backer, which is what gives the floor covering its name. Wool was historically used to make the pile, but synthetic fibres like nylon, polyester, and polypropylene have taken over in recent decades since they are less expensive than wool. Twisted tufts are typical in a pile, normally heat-treated to preserve their structure.

A camouflage carpet may soften a room’s surface for activities such as playing with children or praying and brightening a space with colour or pattern. Variously coloured fibres allow for the creation of virtually any colour of the carpet. The carpet’s surface is decorated with various designs and themes. Retail outlets, hotels, and private residences all use carpets. 



The carpet is made on a loom similar to the looms used to make woven fabrics. There are two options for the pile material: plush or Berber. Both plush and Berber carpets have cut piles and loop piles. Cut and loop carpeting is a unique type of carpet that combines the two previously mentioned types. Predetermined patterns may be created using a variety of coloured yarns in this approach (although some limitations apply to specific weaving methods concerning the accuracy of patterns within the carpet). These carpets tend to be the most expensive because of the lengthy time to produce. Turkey, Iran, India and Pakistan are among the countries where these are most popular.

Felting with a needle.

These carpets are more up-to-date in terms of design and construction. Needles with barbed and forked tips mix and feel separate synthetic strands together, resulting in a powerful and long-lasting carpet. They are commonly used in business environments, such as hotels and restaurants, where there is a lot of foot traffic.


Weave, a knotted pile carpet’s structural weft threads alternate with a supplemental weft. One of the three-knot kinds, such as shag carpet, links the additional weft to the warp to generate the carpet’s pile or nap. In oriental rugs and carpets, hand-knotting is the most common construction method. Hand-knotted Kashmir carpets are also available. ” A loom may be used to weave both flat and pile carpets. European and oriental carpets have been made on both horizontal and vertical looms. Before beginning to weave, the warp threads are placed on the loom’s frame. Weavers may collaborate on a single carpet. Knots are tied in a row and then cut. A weft is used to secure the knots (often one to four rows). Cotton is used for the warp and jute for the weft in a woven camouflage carpet.


Pile is injected into the backing, which is then attached to a secondary backing comprised of either an unwoven hessian weave or an artificial equivalent. Shearing the pile is a standard method of achieving various surface textures. 


An interlocking pattern of warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads results in flat weave carpeting. Kilim, plain weave, and tapestry weave are all examples of oriental flat woven carpets.

List, haircloth, and ingrain are some examples of European flat woven carpets (aka double cloth, two-ply, triple cloth, or three-ply).

Handmade by drawing strips of material such as wool or cotton through the meshes of a durable fabric, such as burlap, the hooked rug is a basic style of carpeting. In the modern period, this rug style is often created by hand. Rug hooking is the method of making a hooked rug.
