A form of hooking, yarns are pushed through the foundation of a rug with an electric tufting gun to form a pattern.
A method of carpet manufacture in which surface yarns are sewn or "punched" through a primary backing material. The needles of the tufting machine form loops which are hooked by loopers on the underside of the backing material and which remain loops in level or textured loop carpet. Alternatively, the loops are tufted and cut with knives to create cut pile carpet. The tufted fabric is then coated with an adhesive to adhere a secondary back to provide durability and stability.
A method of implanting a soft, spun yarn into a backing cloth to produce a pile fabric. Used in the manufacture of carpets and candlewick cloths.
Yarns that have been pushed through a woven base fabric to create a decorative or ornamental pile.
Rug that consists of pattern-forming yarns shot through the foundation of the rug. Back is coated to bind pile fiber with backing yarns. Learn More
Surface, or pile yarns are inserted into a pre-constructed backing. A rapid method of construction, now accounting for more than 90 percent of all carpet and rug production in the United States. The tufting machine may be used for a wide variety of carpet and rug qualities and styles.
The process of stitching yarn through a backing,, material to form a pile surface.
Tufting is an ancient technique for making warm garments, especially mittens. After the knitting is done, short U-shaped loops of extra yarn are introduced through the fabric from the outside so that their ends point inwards (e.g., towards the hand inside the mitten). Usually, the tuft yarns form a regular array of "dots" on the outside, sometimes in a contrasting color (e.g., white on red).
