The term Berber is derived from the Berber Tribe, the indigenous people of North Africa. In carpet terms it has come to mean natural coloured carpets usually with flecks of dark or light colour within it. They are usually made from a loop pile construction and can be made from either natural or synthetic fibres. In line with other styles of carpet, Berbers will differ greatly in both price and quality. Again, Direct Carpet Co are able to advise you on your options.
