Dune width less than 150 cm

Originally designed by Ulf Moritz, Dune is now available in a new colour palette created by Giulio Ridolfo. The new colours recall walks in Skagen in the extreme north of Denmark, with sea views, blue skies and ever-changing dune formations. Both Moritz and Ridolfo took their inspiration from the landscapes, and indeed, Dune’s structure is also reminiscent of an aerial view of a recently ploughed field. Dune can also be used as a wall-hanging; its striking aesthetics and the superb sound absorption qualities of pure new wool lend a serene and calming effect to any space. Moritz designs are often characterised by texture, light and a sense of motion and he wanted to show how these characteristics would translate into a rug design. Made using a fusion-bonded production process Dune has a strong, structured finish with a 10 centimeter end-loop – a reference to textiles. The end result highlights the raw nature of the wool felt.

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 FF 1-70

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.

LightFastness {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightFastness}}

Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.

The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

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.
