Carpets are made with natural fibers such as wool, sisal and jute or with synthetic fibers such as nylon and polypropylene. Many stylish, durable carpets are made with a combination of natural and synthetic fibers.

Wool is the traditional fiber used to make rugs, and it’s no big mystery why. Besides being luxurious to the touch, wool can be dyed to beautiful rich colors, is fire-resistant, stain resistant, non-allergenic and holds up well over time. Also, wool is biodegradable and a renewable resource, making it a green choice as well as an elegant one. We offer carpets that are eco-friendly and available in a variety of styles.

Nylon is one of the most popular fibers. It’s durable, dyes well and is resistant to stains if treated with a stain guard, which is often the case. Other attributes are its resistance to mildew and its flame retardancy, meaning it doesn’t catch fire easily and will produce little smoke if it does. The look and feel of nylon is similar to wool.

Polypropylene, sometimes referred to as olefin, doesn’t absorb moisture, making it highly stain- resistant as well as ideal for outdoor carpeting. Indoors or out, it’s strong, fade-resistant and a good value.

Sisal and Jute are natural fibers woven to produce rugs and carpeting that is flat, with no pile. These are best used in areas that are dry and not heavily trafficked—consider it for the living room, not the bathroom or basement. Since carpeting made with sisal or jute is flat, it’s possible to put a rug over it to add an accent or help to define an area in a room.
