Which Fiber You Should Use in Rug ?
Carpet Fibers, Which One To Choose And Why?
  • Despite what you might think, there is more than
    one type of carpet fiber. How do you know which
    type of fiber is best and what makes them
    different from each other? Is fiber construction
  • For starters, we can divide fibers into two main
  • natural fibers
  • synthetic fibers

Tree types of synthetic fiber
  • There are three types of synthetic fiber
  • polypropylene (also known as olefin)
  • polyester and
  • nylon.
  • As for natural fibers, wool is the most common
    type of fiber. Also, be aware that 99 of the
    rugs available on the market are rugs made of
    synthetic fiber.

1- Synthetic fibers
  • There are three types of Synthetic fibers
  • Polypropylene
  • Nylon
  • Polyester

  • Nylon fiber handmade rugs are often more
    expensive than other types of synthetic fiber.
    Nylon is flexible and offers versatility in
    creating style.
  • It has good resilience, abrasion resistance, a
    good memory for twisting the wire, hides dirt
    well and has some resistance to stains.
  • Due to the strength of the fiber, the nylon fiber
    mat is a great choice for areas with heavy

  • Polypropylene fiber is the most resistant fiber
    in terms of color. Despite prolonged exposure to
    light, sunlight or cleaning chemicals, the color
    will not fade due to its pigmentation process.
    This type of process makes color an integral part
    of the fiber.

  • The weakness of polypropylene is its lower
    resistance than other types of synthetic fiber.
  • It is often chosen for its resistance to fading
    and is ideal in bedrooms and basements, ie rooms
    with a low circulation rate.

  • Polyester fiber is the ultimate choice when
    looking for stain resistance and softness. It
    also pleases limited budgets and offers a very
    good return for its price.
  • To ensure optimum performance, it is best to opt
    for a long-haired polyester fiber with a
    medium-high density. It will give you long-term
    resistance and will keep its appearance better.

2- Natural fibers
  • Oldest Wool
  • Handmade Bokhara rugs made of wool are the most
    common natural fiber rugs on the market. That
    said, who says natural fiber says price higher
    than synthetic fibers.
  • People who opt for a wool rug do so for the chic
    side it provides. Wool is also thicker than
    synthetic fibers.

  • There are of course other types of natural fiber
    such as sisal, seagrass, jute, bamboo, coir or
    even banana fiber.
  • However, they are difficult to find on the
    market, very expensive and difficult to maintain.
