WOVEN CARPETS AS AN EXPRESSION OF EXCLUSIVE STYLE.

 

 

 

The weaving of carpets is the most qualitatively demanding and highest-quality processing method of fine yarns.

WOVEN CARPETS AS AN EXPRESSION OF EXCLUSIVE STYLE.

Weaving is one of the oldest craft activities of man. At least two thread systems, the warp threads and the weft threads, are crossed at right angles. The pre-tensioned warp threads form the support, the weft threads are successively drawn in from one selvedge to the other. The result is a woven fabric, a cloth, a carpet...
This basic principle has hardly changed over the millennia. Nevertheless, Vorwerk has been continuously developing the traditional craftsmanship for more than 125 years, setting groundbreaking accents with new techniques time and again. Today, as hundreds of years ago, weaving is the qualitatively most demanding and highest-quality method of processing carpets. Especially in the contract sector, woven carpets from Vorwerk are indispensable because of their enormous quality, durability and longevity.

HOW QUALITY IS CREATED

THE WEAVING PRODUCTION PROCESS.

1. Warp threads moving from the back to the front are lifted or lowered from the rest position and form a shed.

2. The weft insertion element (shuttle) conveys the weft thread through the shed

3. The reed attaches the weft thread to the already woven part.

4. The weft thread is tied off by changing the position of the warp threads.

=> Up to 50 linear metres per shift

wins award after award.

Vorwerk flooring has hit the big time in terms of design with the Forsa Exclusive 1015 flat weave. The extraordinary design has been awarded numerous prizes such as the internationally renowned Good Design Award, the German Design Award, the Iconic Award and also the A'Design Award.

Product overview

Woven carpet can convince in many ways, because:

1. With woven carpet, the nap weave is achieved by spun binding yarns (binding warp, fabric warp, weft). At the same time, the basic fabric of such constructions already gives the carpet a very high strength and stability. Woven carpeting is very resistant to tensile, shearing and tearing loads (rolling, pushing - even heavy objects -, etc.).

2. A less textured polyamide fibre material is used for the pile material in woven carpet, but as a spun yarn in a 2-ply twist. This achieves:
- Support of the entire pile structure from the base by spun fibre tips.

- unusual elasticity of the pile due to the spiral twisting.

- uniform fabric appearance over many years of use; even with partial use, practically no elasticity-related running road formation.

- particularly dense, closed surface.
- easier maintenance due to the excellent soil removal properties of the fibre and yarn construction.

3.the pile density, i.e. the weight of the pile material above ground in g/cm3 and thus of the actual wear layer, can say comparatively more than the number of pimples. In the case of woven coverings, the value of the pile density is usually very high, even with low numbers of pimples.

4. In the case of woven carpets, the dyeing through takes place in the yarn, so that a uniform fabric finish of each woven section can be achieved.

Woven carpets

in a wide variety of optics.

Woven carpets do not just come in one look. Woven carpets can be produced as loop pile and velour.

Velour carpets:

- short pile, soft woven fabric in many different colours

- Designs possible by lifting out different coloured yarns

Loop carpets:

- firm, hard-wearing woven fabric in many different colours

- Designs can be created by inserting differently coloured play yarns and/or shiny yarns
