Texture

Texture selection is determined by personal taste, furnishing and lifestyle. Options range from smooth velvet plush to rough, bulky Berbers.

Texture is created by the size of the yarns, the twist of the yarns and the surface structure of the finished carpet. Most carpet originally is constructed in a loop pile surface.
