What is an extra-wide weave?
Most of the broadloom or wall-to-wall carpet that we sell comes in the standard 13’ 2” width. Extra wide refers to weaves that are available off of the roll and are wider than 13’ 2”. Our selection of extra-wide weaves ranges between 13’ 2” and 16’ 5”. These weaves are ideal for wall-to-wall installations or oversized custom rugs for larger rooms.
Why choose an extra-wide weave?
An extra-wide weave may eliminate the need for seaming in a wall-to-wall installation if your room is wider than the standard 13’ 2”. Seaming carpet requires skill and precision, and if done poorly can result in split, frayed or overly visible seams. For example, Brushstroke, which is 16’ 4” wide, will beautifully cover a 15’ wide room with no seams and little wasted material, saving you money on installation and material costs.
Creating a custom area rug for an extra large room or open concept floor plan is made easy with an extra-wide weave. With many styles to choose from and designer options for borders and finishing, you can create a look that is unique and transforms your space. Having trouble deciding what size area rug you need?

What materials are used in extra-wide weaves?
The material content of our extra-wide selection ranges from natural sisal to wool to synthetics. We have modern synthetics like Anacortes that are appropriate for light commercial settings, or custom designer weaves that can be woven in large widths, like the gorgeous Poolside from Belgium.
Our wool selection has all the benefits of wool—air purification, non-allergenic, stain resistant, renewable—in extra-wide sizes. Looking for an extra-wide wool rug or carpet with pattern? View our Mosaic, with its Moroccan inspired motif, or our hand-tufted Pinnae for a botanical look. For a luxurious, thick wool blend, look no further than Kennebunkport or Wethersfield.
Extra-wide sisal rugs or carpet have all the inviting textures, natural beauty, durable fibers and classic structures that we love about sisal. Munich is a thick and chunky sisal weave that will never go out of style. For pattern and texture in your flooring, Helsinki or Milan have multi-tonal sisal yarns woven together to create a unique symmetrical pattern repeat.
Still can’t find a weave that is wide enough? Consider carpet tiles: versatile, modular, contract grade and great for residential or commercial spaces. Shop our Carpet Tile selection.
