Tip sheared carpet is a unique construction that offers visual appeal of both texture and pattern. Carpet tiles begin construction by tufting yarn into a pre-woven backing or, needles pushing yarn, such as nylon threads, through the backing. The yarn is then held in place with underlying 'loopers'.
Tip sheared carpet is created by tufting some loops higher than others. The carpet is then sheared at a certain level, the higher loop tufts are partly cut, but the lower ones are not. The resulting cut pile tufts look darker than the loops, creating a pattern. It provides a variety of surface textures or sculptured effects.
The different levels in this type of carpet provide a number of great qualities, including the ability to disguise dirt and footprints.
Modulyss has recently released a new range to the market that utilises this construction method to present a stunning range called Velvet&. The tip sheared quality of this range is highlighted by a contrasting lineal dense structure below the tip. These contrasting textures show an advanced understanding and use of this construction method.
The Velvet& range features a very sophisticated colour palette of 18 royal tints. Its luxury appearance, and high level construction, makes it ideal for both commercial and hospitality environments.
