The vaste majority of manmade carpets are now made from a synthetic fibre called Polypropylene. This is an inherently stain resistant fibre that gives the carpet excellent resilience against stains – even meaning the carpet is bleach resistant and bleach cleanable.

Polypropylene is a strong fibre that can be used for carpets in high traffic areas such as the lounge or the hall, stairs, and landing carpet, and used in many commercial contract carpets.
