Needle-felt wall-to-wall carpet is a type of carpet that is made using a special technique called needle felting. In this process, synthetic fibers are mechanically entangled using barbed needles, creating a dense and durable carpet without the need for traditional backing material. Needle-felt carpets are known for their durability, stain resistance, and sound-absorbing properties. They are commonly used in commercial settings like offices, hotels, and public spaces due to their resilience and ability to withstand high foot traffic.
