Many homeowners speak highly of Berber carpets, a classic style enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

In addition, our five showrooms in Maryland bring high-quality flooring and flooring services to the DC Metro area.
The ‘Berber look’
With its signature tight weave, the Berber carpet is easy to recognize. The weave is formed with short, thick loops of light-colored fibers that are accentuated with dots of color.
While the origin of the Berber carpet has been traced back to the Stone Age, today's styles are inspired by carpets that are handwoven by the North African Berber tribe.
Berber carpeting is usually constructed with tough fibers like nylon and wool. That means this multi-colored carpet is ideal for high-traffic areas of the home, especially since it hides dirt well.
Low maintenance Berber carpet is easy to clean since dirt and spills stay near the surface, and in addition, the carpet muffles sound and traps heat in the room on cool days.
Time-honored Berber styles are 'dotted' with gray and brown flecks, but more contemporary styles are available in many colors.
Many homeowners are attracted to this classic floor covering not only by its beauty and durability but also by its earthy look. Traditional styles, in particular, bring to mind rich colors from nature.
