What is tufting?

Tufting is defined as the act of a needle punching through a backing material in the form of a loop. Depending on loop heights, these loops can add texture, dimension, and, if cut, the “cut pile” can add a velvet like appearance to the tufted area.

Tufting is used to create a variety of textile products, including carpets, rugs, and upholstery fabrics. Historically, tufting was a technique use to make warm garments and other practical pieces.

Today, tufting is used more widely to create textile art forms and other decorative pieces.

A tufting gun is a tool which is now more commonly used to automate the tufting process.
