German term or phrase: Nadelvlies
Decription of a carpet/flooring.
English translation:needlefelt floor covering; needle-punched floorcovering
Explanation:
the 2 above terms from Hohenadel, Textil-Wörterbuch. Ernst also gives "tufted floorcovering" for Nadelvliesbodenbelag. Nadelvlies by itself is needle-punched nonwoven (both Hohenadel and Ernst), however, judging from what you give as context, the floorcovering (or wall-to-wall carpet) should be just fine. HTH.
