    A Berber carpet is looped , but not in a low, level loop like your more common comercial carpets. The loops are varying widths and heights giving it a less commercial look and a plusher feel. Berbers are a mix of coloured fibres, and traditionally were usually in neutral, oatmeal beige/ brown mixes. Now you can find them in neutral shades and mixed with many other colours such as blue, green, rose, mauve , etc., ( but the colour tends to still be muted somewhat ) They were also originally made mostly in wool, making it a rather expensive carpet choice, but you can now find more affordable synthetic blends. Berbers have a rather contemporary look, often seen paired with Scandinavian style furnishings. But it's look is quite flexible so it's easy to blend it in with most any style. It is a carpet style that has proven to stand up so far, against looking dated over time.

    It comes in lots of different colors. Years ago I had the neatest multcolored carpet.

    This is not a good carpet if you have pets though. It snags very easily and then it pullls apart in long strands. Once it is started it is very hard to keep stopped.

    it is a dense, heavy, closed-loop pile carpet. stands up well to wear and tear. although its comfortable to walk on, it doesnt have a deep,luxurious pile like some other carpet.
