The term Berber is applied to carpet that has the off-white, leathered look of cloaks used by the Berber tribes of North Africa. Berber carpets use flecked yarns most often in loop styles. The size of the loops vary from large nubby ones to smaller, faux sisal styles. Patterned Berbers are multilevel-loop as well as cut and loop styles. Berber styles are also available in pastels and dark tones as well as naturals.
