Machine carpets are manufactured with a variety of technologies, different sexes with a variety of shoulders and densities. One of the most common carpets in Iran is acrylic rugs. Acrylic is considered to be a long lasting carpet because of its high resemblance to natural fibers (wool) as well as to life and quality above the same fibers. Although the price of this type of carpet is slightly higher than other commons
In addition to 100% acrylic-based carpets, acrylic compounds are common with other fibers including wool and polyester.
The use of natural wool is also made in the production of carpet because of its higher price than synthetic fibers with less volume.
Among the other synthetic fibers used in the production of carpet we can mention polyester (silk) and polypropylene. Polyester is also considered by some consumers in addition to its brilliant appearance, which makes the carpet look like silk rugs, as well as non-slipping, like acrylic and wool carpets. Of course, the durability and life of this type of carpet is less than the previous ones
Shoulder and carpet density
Two other important factors that need to be considered in carpet weavers are the density and shoulder
The shoulder in the term is called the number of nodes per meter of carpet width. For example, a 1000 shoulder carpet in dimensions of 4 × 3 meters, with 3000 knots across the carpet. The number of nodes in the carpet is determined by the metal shoulders of the carpet fabric
Density is the same as a shoulder that defines the number of nodes per meter of carpet length. Usually the number of longitudinal nodes is greater than the number of transverse nodes. For example, a carpet with a density of 2000 and a dimension of 3 × 2 m, has 6000 knots along the carpet
The greater the amount of shoulder and the density of the car carpet, the greater its microfiber, and thus more similar to the carpet of the handles.
The life of car carpet
The life of carpet can be up to 30 years depending on the fiber used in it, as well as the principle use and maintenance. Preventing moisture from reaching the car carpet and rinsing properly will increase the life of the carpet.
Car carpet designs
The car carpet was designed and wrapped in the past more by inspiration from handmade carpet designs, which usually include parts of Lechk, Bereg and Borders. Over time and changing tastes, carpet design has also undergone a change in the appearance of carpets from Belgium, Turkey and some other countries. Modern carpet designs including geometric shapes, artistic forms and cartoon characters for children are on the rise. Although modern carpet designs have risen to the past, traditional designs, in particular, original handmade carpets, still have many applications and customers.
