Material Guide



Wool is a natural fiber, and a classic choice for carpet. It is strong and durable and is also easy to clean, which is another reason it is ideal for families with a lot of activity. Some manufacturers combine wool with synthetic fibers to create a carpet with the benefits of both.


This man-made carpet fibre is a popular choice, because it’s hardwearing and resistant to stains. It can be cleaned using a part-bleached cleaning solution and is resistence to fading when exposed to sun.


Often used for textured or shag carpets. Polyester is most like wool in appearance and feel, and is remarkably soft, durable and stain resistant. Most often used as a blend, rather than on its own.


Acrylic fabric is made from a man-made fibre, in which the material is very resistant to stains. It absorbs and releases moisture quickly, thus allowing the fabric to "breathe".


Viscose is neither fully man-made nor natural. It is made by regenerating natural materials into a usable form. The non-static material is often created by mercerising wood, hemp or cotton to create a plush, silk-like texture. The treated fibres give a luxurious material with high luster or sheen.


As the name implies Seagrass is a type of grass found close to the sea. This habitat has given Seagrass the ability to resist stains quite well, even though it has a deep textured appearance.
