Loop pile carpets are a design of carpets that are created using a series of uncut loops. The loops are created using weaving machinery that can be configured to create a set pattern of heights or go with one uniform height. This diversity in the way the loops are created allows the carpet to feature a very plain appearance, or sport an intricate design.

Generally, a loop pile carpet is constructed of fibers that are considered to be long lasting. Polypropylene, or olefin fiber, is often an excellent choice for this type of carpeting, since it holds up very well under a great deal of wear. However, it is not unusual for nylon to be employed when the design calls for a short and relatively uniform carpet pile.

One of the advantages to loop pile is that the finished product tends to be easy to clean. The loops actually can help prevent spills from soaking into the body of the carpet. Along with helping to fend off stains, the design also holds up well to cleaning with professional machinery, even when strong chemicals are used for the task.

While there are several popular designs that make use of loop pile carpet, the single biggest seller is Berber carpet. Often considered the best option for both the home and the office, Berber is often well constructed and can feature a level loop or a multi-loop design. When cared for properly, it can last for a number of years before the carpet is ready for replacement.

Loop pile carpet can be purchased at most home stores, as well as through any supplier that offers professional carpet installation. It is possible to obtain it in a number of solid colors, as well as a number of designs that make use of multiple colors. Prices will vary based on the carpet pile and the types of fiber that are used in the selected carpet.
