Woven broadloom, in contrast to tufted broadloom, is a broadloom carpet which has yarn that was placed by weaving warp threads and weft threads on a loom to create an interlocking backing with the surface yarn. The weaving process naturally intertwines and locks the components together. The facial appearance (i.e., the color or pattern) is typically evident, albeit abstractly, on the carpet's underside. The weaving process is more expensive than tufting, and the installation labor is commonly more than installing tufted broadloom.
