Berber Carpet History
Today, “Berber” is a term often used to describe any loop carpet. The term Berber technically describes a certain type of loop carpet with a thick yarn and flecked color scheme (usually a light tan color with darker accents). These carpets originated in North Africa, where tribes used wool and camel hair to create rugs, carpet and cloaks. If you have your heart set on classic Berber carpet, be sure to consult a professional to ensure your new carpet will be Berber and not just a loop carpet.
Benefits of Berber Carpet
Our customers love Berber carpet because the type of weave makes it feel very cushy under your feet. The tight loops are also extremely durable. They resist fraying, stains, and impressions from feet or furniture. This makes Berber a great carpet option for high traffic areas. Berber also offers a high level of traction relative to other carpeting, making it a great option for staircases.
It is important to note that Berber carpet might not be the best option if you have a cat with claws. Sometimes a cat’s claw will get caught on a loop of your Berber carpet and begin to unravel it. When one loop unravels, it can cause a large part of the carpet to unravel in some cases.
