As with all carpets, bear in mind which room the carpets is for. A short, tight loop may not be the most comfortable underfoot but resists flattening and marking, making it idea for stairs and other heavy traffic areas. 

 

Patterned

 There are two types of patterned carpets; those that are woven and those that are printed. Patterned carpets are more varied than plains, as you have a wide choice in both pattern and colour.


Axminster carpets are made on a broadloom and are mainly 80/20 wool blend, although some are 100% wool. Axminsters are generally more expensive than an equivalent plain owing to the tradition time consuming methods of weaving and the high quality of yarn used, that said, they final product is second to non in terms of design, quality, durability and appearance.
 
Wilton Carpets is another method for producing patterned carpets. Today, the majority of patterned wiltons produced use polypropylene yarn rather than a wool blend, producing a more reasonable product to suit any budget. 

 

Natural Floorcovering

Made from natural plant fibres and sourced from around the world, natural floorings such as seagrass, sisal and coir are the latest trend on show at Village Carpets.

Coir is produced from the husks of coconut shells and arguably the most rustic looking product on display. Its texture is coarse and wiry making it the perfect choice for high traffic area such as halls or stairs.

Seagrass is harvested from flooded paddy fields and spun into a strong yet simple weave. Due to its waxy texture, Seagrass is not suitable for stairs.  

The final natural on display is the incredibly hard wearing Sisal. With a wide range in colours and textures, sisal can be fitted anywhere in the house.
