Saxony carpet has been around for a very long time, and is probably the picture that comes to mind when most people think of carpet. Saxony is a cut-pile type of carpet with vertical fibers cut evenly across the top. Saxony is typically taller with longer fibers than a loop pile like Berber, although is not as long and luxurious as Frieze carpet.
Straight Saxony For a Velvety Feel
Straight Saxony is also called velvet Saxony due to the smooth feel this style provides. This type of carpet fiber has a luxurious feel but will show foot traffic as the fibers are swept from one direction to another. Some people don’t mind this, as the soft and luxurious feel of the Saxony provides enough of a benefit.
Textured Saxony Carpet
Textured Saxony is also referred to as trackless, due to the difference in fibers that are twisted so that they reflect light differently when brushed and are less likely to show the foot traffic of a straight Saxony carpet type. Textured Saxony carpets are a very popular choice in busy households, as the ability to mask the constant footprints in between vacuums leaves your carpet looking soft and plush.
This is a huge benefit of the textured style, along with several other benefits of Saxony carpet realized with both straight and textured styles of Saxony carpet. Both straight and textured Saxony provide appealing aesthetics in any room where softness is desired.
Benefits of Saxony Carpet
Saxony carpet is comfortable in both casual or formal rooms with variations of density providing consumers with a choice of selecting either low or high density. The higher density is beneficial in high traffic areas such as busy rooms and hallways. Where softness is desired such as bedrooms or dens, a more pliable texture with lower density might feel more pleasing
