What is a Saxony Carpet?

A Saxony carpet / cut pile plush carpet comprises dense, twisted fibres that create a luxurious finish and velvet-like texture. This effect is achieved by slicing the tops from the loops, which ensures they stand upright and form an even, level surface. Primary disadvantages of a Saxony carpet is that they tend to show marks such as footprints and vacuum marks and is more subjected to pile reversal or water marking.
