About Berber Carpet

This classic carpet gets its name from the indigenous Berber tribes of North Africa whose tradition of weaving dates back millennia. With rich colors, intricate patterns, and that tight loop construction, Berber rugs and carpets have been sought after worldwide for their durability and unique appearance.

Today, wall-to-wall Berber carpets are not typically handmade, however, the carpet’s loop pile with interchanging light and dark color variations does a great job replicating the traditional construction. They are available in a variety of colors and materials, including nylon and wool.


Berber is one of the most versatile carpets you can have installed, and it looks great with a variety of home décors and designs. More durable materials like nylon are a great choice for busier areas of your home. This includes hallways, stairs, and living rooms. The individual fibers will be more resilient to compression and you won’t have to worry about unsightly footmarks or vacuum tracks.

Easy Maintenance

We also love Berber carpets because they are easy to maintain. Because the pile is short and close together, dirt and debris have a much harder time becoming embedded deep in the carpet. For you, this means that cleaning your Berbers is a simple task, and requires regular vacuuming to keep your carpet clean. We also recommend annual or bi-annual shampooing and steam cleaning, especially if you choose a light-colored carpet.

When it comes to stains, consider materials like nylon or triexta for their stain resistant qualities. While Berber might not be as deep as carpets like Saxony or Frieze, liquids will still seep into your floors, so it’s important to blot up any spills as soon as possible, no matter the material you choose.
