Cotton in Rugs and Carpets

Wolfgang A. Strahl


Cotton has made a comeback in the area rug business. Demand increased in the past 5 years from 11-28%. This is mainly due to yarn developments making cotton fiber in yarn form more resilient and reduced surface shedding when made up into rugs. Another major contributing factor is breakthroughs in dyeing and finishing to maintain color fastness, better cleaning, and flame retardancy.
