-Colorfast or never fading: This is a very important specification for mosque carpets. All our masjid carpets have colorfast feature which is good for years for high foot-trafficking areas. As we know our masjids have thousands of believers who come to our mosques every day.
-Stitches / Needle Count: The number of loops of yarn is known as the stitch or needle count. The higher the stitch or needle count, the denser the rug. Higher-density rugs last longer and wear better than more loosely woven constructions. Our masjid carpets have approximately 1 ML points each square meter which is the highest density in the market.
-Polypropylene / Olefin: The most stain-resistant synthetic fiber in the industry. Polypropylene repels water and is impervious to most stains. Olefin has resistance to humidity and mold. It is most recommended material for places where high foot traffic takes place such as Masjids, Banquet Halls, Hotels etc…

Standards have been established for the clothing textiles, vinyl plastic film, carpets and rugs, children’s sleepwear and mattresses and mattress pads. Our all masjid carpets meet the standards of FFA.

Especially in our masjids hundreds of people step on masjid’s carpets thousands of times after they do Wudu multiple times in a day. Feature of antibacterial of our masjıd carpets keeps our masjids clean, hygienic and healthy.
-Heat Set: This is a process polypropylene goes through to put a twist in the yarn. When the yarn is set with heat, it has a wool-like appearance.
-Line Count: One indicator of rug quality is the number of knots or stitches per square inch. When comparing the line count number of different rugs, it’s important to remember that this number may be calculated differently, depending on how and where the rug was made.
