Textured Loop Carpeting
A cut and loop is a style of carpet that is made by combining looped fibers with cut (straight) ones.
This allows the manufacturer to create a design in the carpet, which can be geometric or abstract.
There is a lot of variety in the styling of cut and loops, and most of it has moved away from the sculptured look and into more geometric designs.
Current styles include small square- or diamond-shaped patterns, made by having the outline of the shape contrast the actual shape or pin dot style.
Some abstract styles can also be found, such as in “wave” patterns.
