Types of Carpet


The tufting process is similar to the action of a regular sewing machine. Firstly, a cloth (called primary backing) is passed underneath a long bar containing hundreds of individual needles carrying the carpet yarn through the eye. The needles insert yarn into the backing cloth, the needles withdraw, and a small hook holds the yarn to form a loop on the underside of the fabric which will become the ‘use’ surface of the carpet.

The result is a loop pile carpet. When cut pile carpet is required, the hook that holds the yarn is fitted with a blade that cuts the top of the loop, which forms two legs of yarn, or a cut pile surface. The tufted cloth (whether loop or cut pile) then has synthetic latex (an adhesive) applied to the primary backing and finally, secondary backing fabric is then attached to stabilize the carpet and give it the final form.

Carpet Tiles

Modular carpet or carpet tiles are produced by inserting tufts into a PVC or bitumen compound which has been coated onto a backing fabric. Modular carpet is produced mainly for the contract market.


This carpet type is the traditional method of making carpet, and the process dates back over 200 years. Woven carpet is sometimes referred to as Axminster or Wilton. These are the types of weaving looms. Compared to tufting, woven carpet manufacturing is slower and more labour intensive. Consequently, woven carpet tends to be more expensive than a tufted carpet. However, with unlimited designs and 200 years of performance, woven carpet is still trendy in some market segments (e.g. prestige installations and period homes where intricate patterns, custom design work, and durability are particularly important).
