A Carpet is a flooring material or a floor covering. It is predominantly used in colder countries to keep the floor warm. From rough & rugged floor coverings to exquisite silk floor coverings, you can get a variety of carpets in India
Cotton, coir, wool and silk are natural fibers for carpets.
Nylon, Polyester, Polypropylene, wool are the synthetic carpets. Among these, Nylon is the most popular carpet material. It is very soft, durable, and resistant to stains and abrasion.
If you are looking for fade-resistant colors, Polyester is the fiber to go for. However, the not-so-good part about this kind of fiber is that it is prone to getting flattened under weight.
Almost as soft as Nylon, Polypropylene is highly resistant to stains. However, it is prone to holding onto oils.
Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan are 3 important States in India where woolen and cotton carpets are woven. You can also find cotton on wool carpets manufactured in these States.
The silk on silk carpets is a specialty of Kashmir. They are very soft, beautiful and very expensive.
