Types of Carpet
There are four main methods of carpet construction. Construction
itself is not an indication of quality and performance.
Include well known constructions such as Axminster and Wilton. In both
instances the pile yarn and the backing yarn are made into a carpet
at the same time.
The tufted construction utilises a prewoven backing cloth into which
yarns are tufted.
Several methods are used to bond either individual yarns or a bat or
web of fibres onto a pre woven backing.
Mainly used to produce rugs and carpets (called squares) and predominantly
from the middle and far East.
