Loop pile is how all carpet actually begin — uncut. Commonly known as commercial carpet, loop pile carpets can be either smooth, consistent surface or high and low loops giving the carpet a more textured appearance.. Loop carpets are usually made from olefin or nylon fibers. The multi-color comes from combining different colored fibers together which helps hid traffic patterns and soling. Made from yarns that are looped into the backing, this popular style is perfect for high traffic areas of the home and can be found in many commercial settings.
The combination of cut pile and loop pile provides for some interesting patterns that result from the variation in surface textures. Also known as “sculptured carpets”, or "cut and uncut", this popular style is great at disguising foot traffic and wear and offers a variety of surface finishes.
Frieze - There’s nothing frosty about Frieze. Knobby, yes. Chilly, no. This cut pile offers a tighter “twist” than the Textured style. The yarn actually curls over, creating a very durable and elegant product that hides footprints and vacuum lines.
Textured Saxony - If you don’t require that “freshly mown” look to your carpet, then Textured is the way to go. Because it’s twisted differently than Saxony and steamed to create a permanent curl, this product is “trackless” and reduces light reflectivity so it won’t show footprints. Textured carpet is casual, it’s cool and it will show far less wear and tear than other styles.
Cut Pile/Saxony is what probably comes to mind when you think of carpet — all those thousands of perfectly even, solid colored strands of fiber standing at attention like a freshly cut lawn. This is the stuff that’s thick and soft and shows footprints and vacuum lines. You probably had it “wall to wall” when you were growing up. Today we know that Cut Pile/Saxony tends to wear much quicker than other styles. It’s probably best kept for those low foot traffic rooms — like the formal living room that Mom saved for “company.”
