September is an elegant, highly tactile rug that provides a joyful centrepiece to any home. In Hella’s own words the design is a “botanical and material collage”, brought to life thanks to a host of different materials involved in its construction. Here, hand-spun Tibetan wool combines with nettle, bamboo viscose and silk in vibrant colour fields. Featuring an intriguing surface of colourful geometric elements embedded into a natural base, September reveals a large abstract shadow of a leaf at a distance, which is knotted in a higher pile than the bright shapes that first attract the eye. Two slightly different designs and colourways see the leaf differ in shape, and the placement of the geometric shapes vary across the rug. In addition, the natural colour of the nettle differs from season to season with a pleasant irregularity, highlighted by shimmering silk. Taken together, all of these elements contribute to a sophisticated design with unique variation.
Classification 22, Residential areas with medium traffic
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.
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.
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.
