What is Looped Carpet?
A looped style carpet is exactly what it sounds like; a carpet with a looped style fiber make-up. When carpeting is created, the fibers start out looped. Instead of cutting the fibers to create other styles, leaving them in loops gets you a looped carpet.
Looped carpet popularity was scarce until Berber started flooding the flooring scene. With the newer constructions manufacturers can use now, we see larger loops, multi-leveled loops, and higher performances from these types of carpet.
You’ll find looped carpeting in many different patterns including:
- Plant Designs
Different Looped Pile Carpet Types
In the looped carpet family, there are four distinct types you’ll find. These types of looped carpeting include:
- Multi-Level Loop – A varying level loop carpet that sports dramatic height differences. Deep, easily seen patterns are created by this varying method whether the colors have been enhanced or not.
- Textured Loop – Incorporates slightly different loop styles than the other two loop carpet types. Fiber colors can change and complement visible patterns.
- Level Loop – A strong carpet selection for commercial environments as well as residential. These loops are tightly wound and designed to withstand high foot-traffic.
- Cut Loop – This style is created when some of the fibers are cut out of their looped format and others are kept in loops. You’ll get a very interesting underfoot feel with this one.
As patterned carpeting has seen a rise in popularity as of late, a stylish looped carpet is sure to satisfy your designer’s appetite. It’ll also be the perfect eye candy that will capture the attention of your visitors.
