Just what is Berber carpet?


So you’re researching carpet and came across Berber. What is it? Undoubtedly, you’ve heard about it and its many benefits to homeowners. Why is it so sought after? Let’s answer that today.

Berber carpet is an excellent choice


Berber’s name comes from a North African Tribe that had a particular way of weaving. It was initially a light carpet with flecks of darker color throughout. Instead of loops being cut, as some carpeting is, they are left alone and intact, creating a loop texture that makes a quality flooring.

Berber comes in various fibers, from wool to nylon, to olefin, to a combination of nylon and olefin. The quality of fiber determines the cost of the Berber. But it is generally an affordable carpet to buy.

The Berber carpet is very durable, partly because of its looped fiber strength. Partially, also, from the fact that nylon is a highly durable fiber. It’s effortless to care for, though, so your options for maintenance are plentiful to keep the beautiful appearance.
