It Isn't Easy Being Beige
When you think of Unique Carpets Ltd., what color comes to mind? Beige? When you think of us are you reminded of your grandfather's tan 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass? Well, get over it!!! If you want colorful custom rugs, we've got them. With over 150 standard yarns (that's right, one hundred and fifty) in-stock and readily available in a wide range of colors, our ability to custom combine them in textures and color-ways created uniquely for you is virtually without limit. Additionally, if the standard shades aren't just right, most of our yarns can be dyed to the exact color you need then crafted in dense cuts, bold loops, flowing shags, or custom patterns and delivered to you quickly from far-off and exotic Riverside, California. No waiting 6 months for China or India to get it wrong. Each custom coloration is given a serial number so that all your hard work cannot be shopped. The formula is registered to YOU to help you keep your sale! So go ahead, pick a color, any color.

In the carpet industry, very few products have become "Industry Standards"; products that have been benchmarks in style, luxury, and quality. A few such products are "Fair and Warmer" by Berven, "Breathless" by Salem, "Eloquence" by Karastan, "Kahala" by Customweve, and, the product with the strange name, "Softer than Sisal" by Unique. Softer than Sisal earned the name by providing the look and colors of natural sisal with the luxury of softness underfoot that only pure wool can provide. It has been our number one selling product for over fifteen straight years. Recently updated with new background colors it remains a beautiful, reasonably priced, and trouble-free flooring option. Check it out.

What The Heck Are V.O.C.'S? 
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids and include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have adverse health effects. Concentrations of VOC's are up to ten times more concentrated indoors than outdoors. They're emitted by a wide array of products such as paints and lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning supplies, pesticides, building materials and furnishings, office equipment and adhesives. Organic chemicals are widely used in household products. Paints, varnishes and wax all contain organic solvents as do many cleaning, disinfecting, cosmetic, degreasing, and hobby products. Fuels are made up of organic chemicals and all of these products can release organic compounds when in use. Of the many products used as interior furnishings, Carpet is among the lowest emitters of Volatile Organic Compounds. And even that number dissipates as new carpet is exposed to routine maintenance and the environment. As examples, some relative emissions are:

Paints 100.0

Adhesives 72.5

Wall Coverings 8.3

Wood 1.0

Carpet 0.5
