Associated Weavers' (AWs) iSense Hermes has a long, shaggy, soft feel but beneath this cosy exterior lies a heavy domestic rated carpet built to last.

There are a number of yarns (or fibres) used when producing carpet. The main three are wool, polypropylene and polyamide. All three have their pros and cons. AWs have created iSense, a polyamide (aka nylon) yarn of sublime softness. The pros of polyamide is it's immediate softness and appearance retention compared to all polypropylene carpets. If you want a carpet to look better for longer chose polyamide. The cons? Polyamide yarn is more expensive than polypropylene ... but crikey, the bonkers soft feel you get from an iSense carpet is, in our opinion, so worth the little extra cost.
Hermes falls into the Saxony category. Saxony carpets generally offer a longer than average length of twisted tufts. The tips of the tufts remain distinct, not blending or merging together, leaving an elegant finish. Whilst not a defect, you should be aware that Saxony carpets will show foot prints and vacuuming tracks. Some folks love that phenomena, some don't ... we love that visual, textured tracking affect - shows off the fact you've vacuumed the carpet!
Associated Weavers have backed Hermes and all it's Sensuality Collection stablemates with a 20 year ... yes, a 20 year wear warranty.
Hermes is suitable for underfloor heating and has a TOG value of 1.40.

To conclude, Hermes is an uncommon species of carpet. If Hermes was an animal it would be an Otter; rarely seen but greatly loved and admired. The more discerning consumer identifies with Hermes which offers longevity and timeless colour options. We defy anyone to not be won over once you sink your hands and feet into Hermes' seductive deep, soft, saxony pile.
Hermes may not be the cheapest carpet available but then again, you would not expect a Mercedes-Benz car for the price tage of a Kia. Upper quality and class do come with a slightly higher price tag. How will Mrs Trellis from number 42 hide her envy when she comes round to show off her new knitting pattern and she sees, feels and touches your new Hermes carpet for the first time?
