Manmade carpet materials

Speak to a Store

In the not-so-distant past, the epitome of luxury in British homes was a plush, new wool carpet. However, as we stride into 2024 and beyond, the landscape of home flooring is swiftly evolving, with more and more homeowners opting for carpets crafted from manmade materials, predominantly nylon or polypropylene.

But what exactly are the perks of choosing a manmade carpet for your home?


When you’re investing in a new home, finances are often a primary consideration. The good news is, carpets made from polypropylene offer a cost-effective alternative to wool. If you’re looking to maximize savings without compromising quality, manmade carpets are the savvy choice.


While hardwood flooring often steals the spotlight for durability, don’t underestimate the resilience of polypropylene carpets. They boast exceptional durability, resisting general dirt accumulation and proving effortless to clean. Unlike wool, which requires delicate handling and is prone to moth damage, polypropylene stands strong against wear and tear, making it ideal for high-traffic areas like hallways and living rooms. Additionally, certain types of manmade carpets, such as low-level loop-pile with polyurethane backing, are even resistant to fading under direct sunlight, ensuring long-lasting vibrancy in brightly lit spaces.

However, it’s worth noting that manmade carpets should be kept away from open flames or areas prone to ash exposure.

Luxurious Comfort

Traditionally, wool has been celebrated for its plush, comforting texture underfoot. Yet, thanks to advancements in technology and manufacturing, manmade carpets now rival their woolen counterparts in both comfort and softness. With polypropylene carpets, you can indulge in sumptuous underfoot sensations without sacrificing practicality or affordability.
