Tuftex Carpet Reviews and Prices 2024

Anderson Tuftex is a manufacturer of home goods including hardwood, carpet, and rugs. They currently have several collections which range from classic to modern and are another carpet company under the Shaw brand. Their carpeting stands alone, but you do get the benefit of several Shaw technologies like Anso Nylon and their popular R2X protection system.

Tuftex Carpet Review

We’ve touched on Shaw brand several times, and Anderson Tuftux is one of many flooring brands owned by the company. They utilize a popular premium fiber from Shaw, but you’ll also get a few options from Stainmaster, including their popular PetProtect product.

Introduced in 2001, R2X is a stain and soil resistance system from Shaw. It offers superior stain resistance due to total coverage as the fibers are coated from top to bottom. It’s an extra layer of protection and one that can buy you valuable time until you can break out the cleaning products. That alone can be the difference between a permanent and temporary stain with an ordinary carpet.

On the fiber front, they have several carpets featuring a special type of nylon called Anso. This material is unique as it’s resilient but also recyclable and one of the few fibers rated Cradle to Cradle Silver. Anso Nylon is an eco-friendly “green” product that has a material reutilization score of at least 50 and was made with responsible water stewardship and carbon management.

Tuftex Carpet Collection

Tuftex Carpet Collection

Anderson Tuftex’s carpets are broken down into five collections, and there are two types of backing to choose from with ClassicBac and SoftBac. The collections are only a small sample of what they have to offer, however, so don’t be fooled by the Wonderment Collection considering it only sports two styles of carpet.

At this time, there are only two carpets with a polyester blend and no wool, which will be considered a negative by some. The vast majority of Tuftex carpet is made from nylon whether it’s from Stainmaster, continuous filament or Anso. If you’re looking for carpeting that’s coating in R2X and has an outstanding warranty, there are around 20 styles to choose from. Most are solid or multicolored hues, but there are a few patterns like Mission Square and Muse.

With Anso nylon, there are over 30 styles and more variation with the colors and patterns. Whether you want something vivid and purple like Showbiz Celebrity or carpet that’s more akin to oatmeal, there is a style and texture for you. Their Stainmaster carpet line is impressive as well, and one of the busier collections from a style standpoint while the PetProtect series is a little more tame, but aptly named.

Tuftex Carpet Cost

Anderson Tuftex may be sold by one of the biggest flooring manufacturers on the planet, but that doesn’t mean you can stroll into a Lowes or Home Depot and pick some up. It’s generally found through traditional flooring stores and has one of the widest price ranges we’ve come across. There are a dozen styles over $9.00 and a handful under $2.00 although the majority of their lineup is in the $4.00 - $6.00 per square foot range.

Tuftex Carpet Pros, Cons and Ratings

Anderson Tuftex is a brand that tends to fly under the radar unless you frequent flooring stores or keep up on design trends. It’s a brand you should have high on your list; however, if you’re looking for carpeting that ranges from mild to wild and you don’t have a tight budget.


Tuftex carpets have excellent warranties on the premium end, and we are big fans of their pet-friendly collection. Their carpets are an excellent option for consumers that want a green solution for their home as well.


While you can find several styles between $2.00 to $3.00, the majority of their collection is not cheap when compared to Dream Weaver and others. Their fiber selection is also sparse, considering it mainly consists of nylon.

  1. Cons – they manufactured my carpet 14.2% below spec on weight. Does Tuftex/Shaw incentivize production foremen for lower cost/revenue margins? Most people don’t question the matter.. I kept my carpet sample until after installation. What was laid down was noticeably less dense than the sample. I had my carpet tested. 14.2% under weight.
