Carpets have been made throughout the world for hundreds of years. The manufacture of carpets has evolved over time and continues to improve in all areas. This book provides an overview of the developments and innovations within this area, whilst covering the many different types of carpet that are manufactured.

Advances in carpet manufacture begins by covering the different types and requirements of carpets, along with the structure and properties of the carpet fibres and yarns that are used. The remainder of the book is dedicated to the developments that have occurred in the manufacture of carpets. Topics include the advances in carpet weaving and the reduction of static in carpets. A selection of carpet types are discussed, including wool carpets, textile sports surfaces and handmade carpets.
