Fibers

A Description of

Common Carpet Fibers

Nylon

Nylon is the most common of all carpet fibers, and its high durability makes it a popular choice for areas of the home that receive high foot traffic. Resistant to most dirt, mildew and moisture, this fiber is also known for its ease of maintenance and non-allergenic properties.
 

PET Polyester

This is an excellent fiber choice for the budget conscious. Polyester shares many of nylon’s nonallergenic, moisture and wear resistant properties but lacks the same degree of durability.
 

Triexta PTT

Fibers are extruded from a new generation of polymer giving it exceptional durability along with built-in stain resistance, color clarity, colorfastness, luxurious softness, and ease of maintenance.
 

Olefin or Polypropylene

This fiber was first used in carpets designed for use outdoors and in spaces with high levels of moisture and humidity. Color-fastness, resilience, and resistance to water damage, mildew and piling are important benefits of this fiber. Polypropylene fiber is also recognized for a luxurious appearance and outstanding softness.
 

Wool

 Wool is an age old tradition that has been used for thousands of years to provide a comples fiber with no synthetic dyes. Each shade is created by meticulously blending the natural colors of the wool. It’s timeless texture compliments today’s casual lifestyles and ages gracefully to provide years of elegant service.
