Textured, commonly mistaken for Frieze, is a cut pile that is most known for its tendency to show fewer footprints and sweeper marks than other cut pile constructions.
It should be noted that no cut pile can be classified as being completely free of shading. These constructions are obtained by stuffing yarn into a steam box (stuffer box) and providing a kinked or curled yarn.
The fiber is exposed to live steam to set yarn memory in this curled position. This curling of the fiber reduces light reflectance, thus reducing the appearance of footprints. It is a decoratively versatile carpet that adds casual beauty to any room. Its extremely high popularity makes it a leader as a great “whole-house” carpet.
It is a perfect choice for an active household.
