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.Cut & loop
When cuts and loops are combined, you can create a wide range of patterns.
In addition to construction types, The Floor Store divides its carpet products into the following eight styles. In our online product catalog, you can search by these styles to help you determine a favorite.
