The modern day “shag”, Frieze’s provide a soft casual style.
A Frieze carpet is a good choice for active areas. The cut pile on this carpet’s yarn is twisted tightly so that the ends actually curl over, resulting in a textured surface with a curly appearance and a hard wearing carpet.
Frieze is characterized by long fibers that have a high twist to them, and it is often referred to as a “twist” carpet.
