TUFTED CARPET FOR AUTO USE 560303

Tufted automobile carpet is probably the most challenging interior trim development recently seen in automotive manufacture. Contrasted with conventional weaving of auto carpets, the technique is faster, more flexible, and utilizes surface materials for a “new look on the floor”, not previously available to the car producer. A brief comparison of both types of production, along with a sketch of the growth of tufted carpet to its present position of importance in the industry serve to spotlight the fact that the carpet manufacturer has kept pace with the latest style and manufacturing demands of the auto makers.
