Our founder Matt Francis talks about the rise in popularity of silk carpets

Texture is very important, whether that be a chunky wool loop or a short cut twist, but one style of carpet that has grown in popularity of late is silk effect carpets. These luxuriously soft carpets are not only extremely cosy underfoot, but they also lend an air of elegance to any interior. The faux silk (nylon) versions of this style of carpet are not necessarily cheap as they are extremely durable and hard-wearing, however due to its popularity a number of manufacturers have followed suit in the production of silk effect using polypropylene thus making this style of carpet much more affordable.
