The history of Berber carpets started in North Africa, where they were handmade by Berber tribes. One of the great things about Berber carpets is that they come in both traditional and modern styles. They can be distinguished based on knitting patterns and fabric textures.
A majority of modern Berber carpets come in a loop structure. This type of carpet flooring usually contains small flecks of dark color on lighter background colors resembling a natural, undyed version of traditional carpets. Berber carpets are a popular choice for homemakers. They are available in a range of colors.

Berber carpets have been becoming more popular lately. The fibers in Berber carpet flooring are durable, luxurious and provide cushioning. They also come in different designs for homemakers to choose from. These carpets work well in high traffic areas and all other types of rooms. Some love traditional designs and others like modern Berber carpet designs.
Berber carpets are also stain resistant, making them a good choice for homes with children. The material is soft and smooth. Heavier Berber carpets give off a thicker and plusher feel, while light-weight options can feel a little rougher.
