CARPETING is well and truly covered at the Ideal Home Expo, with three exhibitors concentrating on these floor coverings. Cathay Carpet Manufacturers specialise in the supply of custom-made woollen carpets, made to any design, colour or size in one piece. Cathay's carpets are hand-made in Tuen Mun. They use only top quality wool from New Zealand and woollen yarns are chemically treated during the dyeing process for flame resistance and colour fastness. The company will have representatives on hand to talk about the history of wool, trends in carpet design and offer examples of the carpets, which will be for sale. For a more traditional style of carpeting, Chinese Rugs Company will display hand-made carpets which have all been produced in China. Ms Connie Chung of the company said it could take seven months to complete a medium-sized rug as every knot was tied separately. The company's three booths will have about 500 rugs for sale. Colourtone Carpet Care is a company which can extend a carpet's life. Services include repair, cleaning, stain removal, deodorisation, protection treatment and emergency flood service. Since beginning in August last year, the company has treated carpets in 200 homes, offices and hotels.
