There are two types of natural material carpets. One is a carpet woven with wool. It feels comfortable and soft under the feet and is a high-end product among carpets. The other is made of jute and sisal, and the price is relatively cheap.
Nylon, acrylic, and polypropylene fibers primarily make up chemical fiber carpets.
This type of carpet resembles the appearance and texture of wool carpets while being more affordable, making it suitable for use in spacious areas like living rooms and corridors.
Blended carpets generally add a certain proportion of chemical ingredients to pure wool carpets. For instance, adding 20% nylon fiber to pure wool fiber can significantly enhance wear resistance.
It has most of the advantages of natural material carpets and chemical fiber carpets and has high-cost performance.
Plastic carpets, known for their waterproof, non-slip properties, are an economical choice. They find frequent use in locations like outdoor spaces, shopping malls, and bathrooms.

Various techniques are allowed to present your unique patterns.
The design of a carpet resembles a work of art, allowing for creative expressions in various forms. Designs can be primarily categorized into abstract, solid color, geometric, and retro styles. There are usually three ways to present patterns: printing, jacquard, and embroidery.
Printed carpets use inkjet technology to present patterns on the base carpet, which is similar to a large-scale printer. This type of carpet has rich styles, a relatively high degree of restoration of patterns, and high production efficiency.
Carpet manufacturers can print graphics on all colorable materials including nylon, wool, polyester, and blends.
