What are the Most Common Carpet Types?

Carpets can be made from a variety of different methods and fibers. Weaving is perhaps the oldest method, in which the fabric is woven on a loom. The needle felt method is considerably more advanced, in which needle felts are created through electrostatic attraction of fibers. The end result is an attractive, durable carpet. Knotted construction has been intermittently popular, with shag carpets from the 1970s being a notable example. The most common method for producing flooring carpet is the tufted method, in which a pile is injected onto a backing fabric.
