What is a Saxony Carpet?

Saxony carpets are created using twisted carpet fibred which stand up straight in a cut loop pile style carpet. The tight twist of the fibres which are densely woven help to create an incredibly soft carpet for superior underfoot comfort. Find out more about cut pile carpets in our last blog article.


While many carpets are created using a range of different toned and coloured fibres, Saxony carpets are typically created using one colour. This creates a stunning and dramatic appearance, no matter which colour you choose. Whether you go for a bold shade or a more simplistic, modern colour such as grey or beige, Saxony carpet looks phenomenal in any room. It is also worth noting that you can also find heather styled Saxony carpet.

Saxony carpets come in both straight and textured styles. The straight style Saxony carpet feels and looks like velvet due to the uniform appearance created by the uniformed fibres which sit in the same direction. Textured Saxony is also becoming incredibly popular, particularly in family homes. While it isn’t as soft as straight Saxony carpets, however, it is better at hiding any footprints or vacuum marks. Overall, both straight and textured Saxony carpets are incredibly soft and luxurious underfoot, making Saxony carpet a great addition to any home.
