Slope 250x350cm

Slope is a high quality Tibetan wool rug characterised by a dynamic colour bleed at the sides. In an earthy palette ranging from brown and golden to autumnal red, dove gray, and green, the design is created using a process described by Hella Jongerius as a ‘tye-dye woven construction’. This complex ikat-technique involves dyeing tightly wrapped bundles of yarn by hand so that the pattern is created in the yarn itself. Dyed yarns are then meticulously aligned on a loom by a master weaver in order to render Slope’s precisely blended quality. The irregularities created by this handcrafted approach are perfectly balanced in the design by a clear graphic stripe across the ecru base. Finished with a single festoon edge on the top and bottom of the rug and a double festoon on both sides, Slope is a contemporary take on a traditional flatwoven kelim. It is ideal for both the home and light traffic contract spaces.

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.

Fire tests Bfl-s1

There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.

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.
