Types of Carpet Fibres

Carpet fibres can come from different materials like synthetic materials or natural materials. Fibres play an important role in carpet and can influence design, durability, and stain resistance. Synthetic fibres include nylon, polyester, olefin, and triexta. Nylon happens to be one of the most popular synthetic carpet fibres. It is durable, and can be treated to be stain resistant. We also offer carpets made with natural fibres, including wool. Wool is a sustainable fibre and also an eco-friendly option. Wool is also naturally hypoallergenic, resistant to staining, and stands up to wear and use.
