What is Frieze Carpeting?
Frieze carpet, which some people still call shag carpet, is a style of cut pile carpet that has a high twist level. Its long soft strands and stylish modern look make frieze a popular carpet choice for homes in Vancouver WA.
When it comes to the makeup of these carpets, Frieze can be comprised of a variety of fibers, including nylon and acrylic. They are made by knotting pile through a stiff backing and then cutting it so that all fibers are the same length. (A heavy-weight frieze carpet with slightly less twist is called a cable carpet.) Frieze carpets come in a variety of styles and colors, and they are especially known for their durability and easy maintenance.
Why Choose Frieze?
One of the biggest benefits of Frieze carpeting is its durability and easy maintenance. Frieze carpeting’s yarn folds over on itself, which means it’s unlikely to show vacuum tracks, footprints and dirt. This standout feature means your carpet will look newer longer and take less time and energy to clean. Frieze carpets also come in a variety of color options, though their thick pile does mean they do not come in complex designs. Frieze carpets are able to withstand life’s everyday challenges like pets and young children in the home, and they are also tough enough to handle commercial use.
