Polyester offers exceptional softness and color clarity, and is also naturally stain and fade resistant. While polyester is not as inherently resilient as nylon, carpets made of polyester fiber will perform well if appropriately constructed. Carpets of polyester are generally available only in cut pile styles. Polyester fiber produces bright colors, some of the most beautiful colorations available.

Polyester is manufactured in staple fiber only. While it's not as durable as nylon, it is quite durable and resists wear. While it is susceptible to pilling, shedding and oil-based stains, it otherwise cleans fairly easily and is enhanced by stain treatments.

Some polyester fibers are recycled from plastic soda or water bottles. If environmental concerns are an issue, ask for polyester fibers that have been reclaimed from post consumer products. See video on left for a preview of the recycle process.
