What is Berber carpet?

Today there are several types of modern Berber carpet made from a range of materials.

The most common fibers are:  

  • Nylon
  • Olefin
  • Polyester
  • Wool

The size of loops and cut pile varies for each manufacturer. Olefin is the most commonly used and most affordable material, and carpets with blends of the different materials are also available. Berber is made from one continuous fiber, not short pieces of fiber.

Berber carpet is highly durable and is often found in high-traffic areas such as:

  • Family Rooms
  • Kids' Bedrooms
  • Offices

It is stain resistant as well, and is more affordable than thicker plush carpets. The disadvantage is that it can be difficult to clean if dirt does get lodged in the fibers, and it may need professional cleaning. As with all carpets, Berber should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months to prevent permanent wear patterns.
