Response to 'ave a squiz at this lot


I've seen a lot of commercial carpet like that throughout Europe, and it's also in Australia and New Zealand. These commercial floor coverings are SUPER-FLAT with pile density so intense it's almost like a solid surface.

But in the USA, commercial carpet's are not the same. In the USA, commercial carpets are still tufted with much looser pile than the flat-dense carpets like you have there. It's very different. In fact the next time you're at Connections take a look at the stuff you're walking on and you'll see that it's altogether different.

The flat-dense stuff hasn't caught on in the US yet. Maybe it will. But my guess is that it won't. Dalton Georgia (headquarters for all the major mills) is a very old school kind of place, and nothing new rolls through there without a major paradigm shift. I can't foresee them moving in such a different manufacturing direction anytime soon.
