Berber carpet is a popular choice for high traffic areas thanks to its durability and stain resistance.
At Floor Coverings International of Shallotte we are proud to offer a variety of Berber carpet options to the Ocean Isle Beach and Shallotte area.
Berber Carpet History
Today, “Berber” is a term often used to describe any loop carpet. The term Berber technically describes a certain type of loop carpet with a thick yarn and flecked color scheme (usually a light tan color with darker accents). These carpets originated in North Africa, where tribes used wool and camel hair to create rugs, carpet and cloaks.
Today’s loop or Berber carpet is most commonly made from nylon, wool or olefin fibers. Because of its low pile and dense loops, Berber can withstand heavy traffic and still look great.
Loop carpets can come in a variety of different looks including solid color and all one length loops, multi-colored and multiple length loops (creating a great pattern or textured look) and anything in between. Years ago, loop carpets were generally relegated to basements and indoor/outdoor settings. Today, with all the fashion-forward loops, and thanks to some real advancements in softer carpet fiber technology, loop carpeting is showing up in bedrooms, family rooms and every other type of room where carpet is generally used.
With so many styles, colors and patterns available, there’s sure to be a Berber carpet out there for your home. If you are looking for a loop or Berber carpet, give our carpet experts a call.
