How carpet is made
The tufted carpet making process has changed little over time. What has changed is the complexity of the designs and construction of carpet. While computer-controlled tufters and precision measuring devices ensure production quality remains high and operate efficiently, there is still a strong element of craft in making carpet.
Carpet is made of four key ingredients - the wool which is tufted onto a primary polypropylene backing using what is essentially a giant sewing machine. These two elements are then bonded to the backing material using a low VOC latex.
In the attached three sections we outline how Cavalier Bremworth takes the raw wool from New Zealand farmers and turns it into a quality, beautiful wool carpet ready to be installed in your home.
