Loop pile
Loop pile carpet is made from uncut continuous loops on the surface and gives a fabulous contemporary look with its distinctive knot appearance. Carpet can be looped with a low-profile pile construction, which is known for maintaining its looks, or have loops of different heights to form a textured pile. Full of natural character with its wonderful variety of textures, super stylish loop pile carpet is ideal for hallways and stairs and looks fresh and modern throughout the home. These uncut, wool loops have a structure that bounces back to shape. Whether flat or textured, the chunky appearance of loop pile gives a natural yet contemporary look to your floor, adding a subtle hint of pattern that gives interest and depth to the space in your home.

Flatweave
Flatweave's look more like a heavy weight textile fabric and are often used to make runners in striking stripes or herringbones, ideal for making a unique statement on staircases, halls and landings. Made without knots, flat weave carpet is created by weaving horizontal and vertical wool fibres neatly together. The result is a hard-wearing carpet ideally suited to staircases, halls and landings. The lack of piles compared with a more traditional carpet, such as loop pile or cut pile, means it is durable and long-lasting. Laid out in a herringbone style pattern, our carpets provide a stylish and elegant look to create a unique statement. With a contemporary pattern, a flat weave carpet can add a touch of style to an area of the home. Whether used on a stairway, in a larger room, or to create a fashionable runner, the heavy-weight fabric will blend with your setting to establish a comforting feel for your home.

Cut pile
Sometimes referred to as 'twist' finish, cut pile carpets are made by cutting the yarn loops, producing an upright pile that feels delightfully springy underfoot. Browse our collection of beautiful, plain, twist carpets in an array of bright and neutral colours.
