Flatweave
This type of carpet looks more like a heavy weight textile fabric. Flatweave is often used to make runners in striking stripes, or textural neutral carpets – perfect for statement making staircases and hallways.

Cut pile
Cut pile carpets are made by cutting the yarn loops, which produces an upright pile that has a luxurious finish with a soft feel and plush appearance. Cut pile carpets may also be referred to as 'twist' finish.
