Broadloom carpet describes any kind of carpet that is machine-woven on a wide loom and has become a term used to describe nearly all the carpet manufactured today with the exception of carpet tiles. Broadloom comes in a variety of colors, patterns, and pile heights (the height of the fibers that form the carpet’s surface). Materials range from natural fibers such as sisal and wool to man-made materials such as nylon and acrylic.
Most broadloom carpets are now created by high-tech equipment in high-volume manufacturing facilities. These carpets are manufactured in widths of 6, 12, 13, and 15 feet. Many home owners are now also taking sections of broadloom carpet and having the edges bound to create area rugs.
