Bare foot feeling

Our vinyl comes with 3 different backings that will give you the ‘bare foot feeling’ you are looking for. Soft Cushion backing provides springy underfoot softness and comfort. A Firm backing will give you a firm and flat underfoot feeling, while a Felt backing is a slightly softer feel and helps absorb small imperfections in your sub floor of up to 2mm.

Designs to suit any taste

The yarn adds another dimension to your carpet. Wool and wool rich carpets are warm, natural and remarkably resilient. They are an eco-friendly choice, providing a unique softness and luxury. If you’re looking for a fibre that’s tough and hardwearing, polypropylene is up to the task. It’s also highly stain resistant, durable and easy to clean, so you won’t need to treat it as though you’re treading on eggshells. Nylon is the toughest synthetic carpet fibre and noted for its durability. Nylon carpet is less likely to show indentations after furniture has rested on it, so it looks newer for longer. Nylon carpets can often have designs printed on them.If you’re going to put your carpet through its paces, nylon will have no problem keeping up.
