What new trends and innovations are influencing flooring options?
Technological advancements in the flooring industry are facilitating many new flooring solutions, much more than ever before. Designers and facility owners are increasingly interested to know the sustainable characteristics of flooring materials well before starting the project.

We are the world’s largest carpet manufacturing company with a wide range of carpet tiles and other product lines, which are supplied to the Indian market from our plants in the US and China. Our Global Design Studio continues to innovate with carpet tiles that combine cut pile, loop and intricate weaves. These new carpet products create new ways for design to go in many directions -- be it an interesting carpet tile project, banded throw rug, or a broadloom installation.

At the same time, Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) is gaining in popularity as this product comes with beautiful wood, stone and other aesthetics. It is also durable, easy to maintain and install. Keeping this trend in mind, we have launched a set of new products under LVT and Engineered Vinyl Tiles (EVT) segments (with cork backing based on the COREtec® patented technology).
