Wire Tough

Wire is a pioneering rug developed by Studio Linse, which offers an elegant fusion of structure, material and colour. It is the first rug to feature Tencel®, an innovative material made from eucalyptus wood from a replanting project. Surprisingly soft to the touch, it has, as its name suggests, a high-tech, metallic expression. There are two versions of Wire, which are both made from a combination of wool and Tencel®: Wire Gentle and Wire Tough. The difference between them is the amount of Tencel® in the yarn. Made from 70% wool and 30% Tencel®, Wire Tough also features a looped surface but is made using thicker yarns, consisting of three threads. This gives it a more robust look than Wire Gentle. In addition, the percentage of Tencel® varies between the yarns used in its construction, which creates eye-catching differences in colour and shine across its surface.

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.

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.
