The texture and quality of a carpet is determined by the way it is made, or constructed, and the finish applied to the fiber tufts or pile. Test the pile density in the shop by bending the carpet sample back, pile side toward you. The less backing you can see, the better the carpet. Traditionally, the strongest and most expensive carpets have always been woven on looms. The term broadloom refers to any carpets over 3ft wide. The fibers are woven into the backing to form a dense, strong pile. There are two types of weave commonly used for broadloom carpets: In Axminster carpets, pile is woven into the backing material, a row of U-shaped tufts at a time. This weaving method allows a wide range of colors to be used to create quite elaborate patterns, although plain and simpler designs are more popular. The pile is always cut; it can be short and smooth or long and shaggy. In Wilton carpets, the pile is woven from continuous yarn, so that the fibers are buried in the backing to make a high density, hardwearing carpet. It is available with a cut, loop, and cut and loop pile.
