What is "Axminster" - Definition & Explanation

A type of weave now associated with a particular quality of carpet.
A type of carpet where the pile is inserted one row of tufts at a time, each row representing a section of the overall pattern. The tufts are `U'-shaped, and are anchored at the bottom into the primary backing which is simultaneously woven. The backing may have a synthetic-starch or latex finish applied to it. Axminster weaving has been traditionally used mostly for creating multicolored patterned carpets.
