Machine - Tufted Carpet



Tufted carpet is the most common method of constructing carpets today. Created with the use of machinery, tufted carpet has a reputation for being sturdy and wearing well over long periods of time. Several popular styles of carpeting make use of the comfortable pile that is created with the tufting process.

In order to appreciate the nature of tufted carpet, it is helpful to understand how a tuft is created. Tufts are essentially clusters of yarn fibers that are drawn through some sort of medium, such as a natural fabric or synthetic base. The tufts project from the surface of the base, and may be configured as a loop or cut strands.

The creation of tufted carpets requires the utilization of a tufting machine. Needles are mounted into position on tufting machines, and help to push the fiber through the base material. Settings on the machine can be programmed to create pile tufts that are uniform in height and distribution. The machines can also be set to create a pattern composed of tufts of different heights.

Tufted carpets may be composed on fibers of a single color, lot, and merge, or be an eclectic mix of hues in a random or specific pattern. Generally, tufted carpet is treated with some form of stain resisting chemicals, which helps to lengthen the life of the carpet. Because tufted carpet can be created with a wide range of natural and synthetic fibers, it is possible to find options that are right for both indoor and outdoor use.
