All rugs start with looped fibers, which is a style in itself, as in Berber rugs. When the loops are cut, it becomes a cut pile, such as the Saxony. Cut pile is moderately high, with even fibers that stand up and have exposed ends. Cut piles, however, can be of varying heights, such as the long, loose fibers of the shag or the longer ones of the frieze that are so tightly twisted they curl. Low pile rugs, seen in commercial-grade carpets, are easier to clean and somewhat more durable. There's also a style known as the cut and loop, precisely as it sounds and creates pattern and texture.
