At Floor Coverings International, we’re proud to provide Berber carpeting for the greater Metro East area, including Belleville, Edwardsville, and Collinsville.

What Is Berber Carpeting?

Berber carpeting is one of the densest carpet weaves, composed of a mix of large and small tufts. Berber carpets draw their names from the traditional hand-woven carpets of the people of North Africa, and modern Berber carpets are known for their color scheme of small flecks of dark color on lighter shades, which brings the traditional weaves to mind. At Floor Coverings International Metro East, we carry a vast supply of Berber carpeting, so there’s sure to be a fit for your project and aesthetic tastes.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Berber Carpeting

When homeowners opt for Berber carpets, they’ll enjoy a host of benefits. The thick tufts that make up Berber’s weave make it resistant to spills, since its surface is less easily penetrated. That same weave also makes Berber feel soft underfoot, which is sure to be a perk for homeowners who are interested in carpet’s comfort and warmth. Finally, Berber packs all of these benefits into an affordable price-point, which in one of the top selling points of this carpet for many homeowners.

As far as Berber’s disadvantages are concerned, there is one group of carpet buyers who should think twice before buying Berber: cat owners. Berber’s tufted weave is incredibly appealing to cats, so cat owners may be better served by a carpet that kitty won’t view as a personal scratching post.
