Bamboo

Bamboo features a rich, compact structure, a long pile and exceptional colour richness. Designed by Ulf Moritz and Felix Diener, it has a distinctively light and playful expression. Bamboo features a 40 mm pile and a particularly dense composition: every square metre contains over 1.8 million yarns. Consequently, the rug has a particularly vibrant look and feel. Bamboo comes in 18 elegant colours, which are contemporary interpretations of the hues found in ancient Persian rugs. These range from bold shades, such as deep pink and purple, to natural shades, such as beige and creamy white.

A steel tumbler with rubber studs rolls freely in a rotating drum and wears the surface of the test samples inside of the drum. After 5.000 and 20.000 turns the sample is examined and rated by five inspectors based on the changes in its surface structure and colour.

Rugs that meet the minimum requirements of the test are rated from 21 (worst) to 23 (best) for residential use and 31 (worst) to 33 (best) for residential and commercial use.

Therefore some may detach when the rug is in use, particularly with new rugs Rugs made with bamboo viscose will reduce the amount they shed but will not cease shedding completely. This will not affect the appearance or quality of the rug If a bamboo viscose rug gets wet it will take a few days to dry fully. Do not walk on it as it will damage the yarns. The rug should not be rubbed as the structure may change Round or odd shape possible, will be calculated as a rectangle or square

Care instructions rugs

Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the rug looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the rug and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.

  • Stain removal

    Remove stains immediately. Place a clean, wet cotton cloth and leave it on the stain until it has absorbed it. If needed, dab the stain by working from the edge of the stain inwards. Do not rub to remove the stain. Bamboo viscose Do not walk on or rub a wet bamboo viscose rug, as this will damage the structure of the yarn. It will take a few days for a bamboo rug to fully dry. Silk rugs Every stain, including plain water, should only be treated with soda water. Vinegar or tap water should never be used. We always recommend professional cleaning of the rug when necessary.

  • Regular care

    Kvadrat rugs are made with care to last. To make sure your rug maintains its vitality and character over a long lifetime, it helps to take good care of it. We recommend vacuum cleaning your rug at least once a week using a vacuum cleaner set to medium power without applying a brush. Always vacuum in the direction of the pile. Please also rotate the rug frequently to prevent wear and fading in the same place. Ideally, the humidity in the room where the rug is located should be around 50%. If humidity falls below 40%, we recommend spraying your rug with water to avoid the yarn to become dry and brittle.
