Why buy a carpet ?
There is nothing quite like woven carpets to add comfort, warmth and character to a room.
A carpet will transform an interior in a way that no other single item of furniture can, yet will often cost less and last longer.
A carpet cushions the impact of the noise, aiding relaxation and improving ambiance
Carpeted rooms have better air quality than rooms with hard flooring. It traps dust in the pile until removed by vacuuming. Wool carpets also show air quality improvement through lower VOC’s and improved humidity control
Carpets do not only create the feeling of warmth, they actually help retain heat in a room by acting like a thermal insulator
Why buy a Woven carpet ?
When buying a carpet it is important to buy a product equal to the task, avoiding early replacement and ensuring value for money.
Woven carpets have 3 distinct advantages:
Precision of texture
The interlocking warp threads (lengthwise) and weft threads (crosswise) are produced in such a way
that the tufts of carpet yarn are secured between them row by row.
The backing and surface are created together during weaving making the carpet dimensionally stable.
The manufacturing process produces a very precise texture which is difficult to emulate in tufted carpets
