Material: Polyester

Polyester (about $1-$4 per sq. ft.) and the rest of the synthetics (see next) are solution-dyed, so they repel stains and resist fading better than wool and yarn-dyed nylon. Polyester doesn't hold up as well as nylon in busy rooms and may crush permanently under furniture legs. Bottom line: Good for spill-prone spaces, like playrooms.
