Cut pile carpet is created by cutting the top loops of of carpet fibers which results in yarn strands standing straight up. This type of carpet has a luxurious look and feel but is less resistant to crushing than other types of carpet.
Today, this type of carpet is produced using man-made fibers (a combination of polyester, olefin and polyester fibers) which helps the carpet hold up under lots of traffic. This is an improvement from natural fibers which would not be as resistant to such traffic. The synthetic blend makes this kind of carpet ideal, even in an office environment.
Cut pile carpet is available in three different designs - varying in the specific twist to the individual yarns, as well as the choice of fiber used. All three variations tend to last for several years before visible signs of aging appear.
