Carpets are labelled into three different classifications:
A twist pile is where the pile (or tuft) has been finely twisted and then twisted around another finely twisted pile, this helps to prevent crushing.
A velvet pile carpet is where the piles are straight and generally cut short, for strength.
A natural carpet is where the piles are 'looped' over and made into patterns varying from a criss-cross to bobbles. Sea grass and sisals fall into this category.
The price of carpets, no matter the classification, is determined by the quality of the material used. It is also decided by the amount of material used per square inch, aka the pile weight. A 30 oz carpet has half as much raw material being used as in a 60 oz carpet, and this is reflected in the price. The carpet that has a pile weight of 60 oz will also appear fuller if compared to the same carpet of a lesser weight.
Carpets come in a variety of plain colours or multitonal colours. They are also available in different backings (hessian, action, and felt) which will affect the price of the same carpet with a different backing. With all of these facts combined you are sure to find a carpet that suits not only your needs, but also the needs of the surrounding area.
