Gracias. Al final opté por "industria de alfombras" a secas puesto que el texto iba a ir inicialmente al mercado americano, pero la agencia luego me dijo que lo hiciera lo más "neutro" posible porque también iba a España. Así que ni moquetas ni tapetes...

industria de manufactura de alfombras


Explanation:
Found "manufactura de alfombras" and "industria" in same links but not as a single phrase. It seems you have an "Industria textil" and "manufactura de alfombras" belongs to such industry. Check links below, cheers :)
