Other synthetics include polyester, a non-absorbent (hydrophobic) material with excellent inherent resistance to stains. Olefin is budget-friendly, non-absorbent, and often used in the Berber style. Triexta has permanent stain resistance built into the fiber and is as strong (some say stronger) than nylon.
These three things are together because in carpet flooring pile determines style, and style determines texture. There's a cut pile, which means the fibers are cropped in varying lengths. The iconic Saxony is a cut pile with versions: Saxony Plush, a soft, velvety texture, and Saxony Straight, a patterned one. Cut and loop are just as it sounds; some are cut; others are straight loop, creating an embedded pattern and texture. A straight loop is a Berber style, a low pile rug with short, tightly woven fibers. High pile rugs have long loose fibers like the shag and frieze.
