The following Carpet Glossary has been amassed from years of collecting carpet related terms. Many of these carpet terms have been borrowed from various sources over the years and in many cases the original source has been lost. In essence, these terms and definitions may be found in numerous publications with the exact verbiage, making it impossible to decipher the original source. Our apologies to the original authors.
