Flooring and Carpeting/Identifying Carpet Manufacturer

Question
Hi, I have Berber carpet and am trying to identify the manufacturer. The only labeling on the back are the following letters/numbers ELT 21752 191. I have searched every conceivable combination of search words for Manufacturer directories, etch. with no luck. Thank you so much.

Answer
That number was assigned to Alladin Carpet Mills.  Alladin acquired Mohawk Carpets about 15 years ago, and now operates under the Mohawk name. I was unable to identify a specific product name, as this was apparently an old number.

The printing most likely said "ETL 21752 181, its usually hard to read on the rough backing material.  ETL is the certifying organization for the FHA certification program. The "21752" denotes a specific product at mill #181, which is/was Alladin Carpet Mills.  

Mohawk may be able to help with identifying that product or something similar. Their number is 800-266-4295.

Hope that helps.
