The industry offers an excellent variety of fibers, including natural and synthetic carpeting options, so you can easily choose the one that best fits your needs. Be sure to read along with us in today’s post to find out the differences between the two to make the best choice for your home.

Carpeting fibers matter, and here’s what you need to know


Natural carpet fibers are made of naturally occurring materials, such as the most well-known, which is wool. Synthetic fibers are created on machines using different chemical compounds and are the most commonly sold options in this floor covering line.

If you’re concerned about eco-friendliness, natural fibers are always a great choice, as they release no VOCs on their own. However, if stain resistance is a concern for your household, synthetic fibers can help keep your surfaces looking great for years to come.

Natural fibers carry a higher price tag, as you might expect, and they require specific maintenance procedures to remain in top shape. However, synthetic options are an excellent choice for busy homes and need much less time for cleaning and maintenance, and you can find out even more about them when you visit our showroom at your convenience.
