Product description

The Corde Droit is created by long-time Kvadrat collaborator Ronan Bouroullec. "Drawing has always been part of my life, a long time before I became interested in design,” says Ronan. “I have always drawn with different types of tools, from ballpoint in a cafe to a large brush in my studio, drawing, it’s like a constant companion for me.”

Many of Ronan’s drawings take form through the steady repetition of lines, and the Corde Collection evolved from an urge to translate this effect into rug designs. The assembled ropes in the Corde Collection mimic the appearance of hand-drawn lines placed next to each other, creating patterns and surfaces that flow in different directions.

To achieve dynamic colour depth, the rugs feature a combination of tie-dyed yarns. This traditional technique partially dyes the yarn hanks, creating a subtle interplay between dyed and undyed sections as well as an organic colour transition in each yarn. The ropes are meticulously braided from thin New Zealand woollen yarns, ensuring durability and resistance to dirt. An organic cotton core adds weight to the construction, keeping the rug flat. Cotton stitching yarn binds the ropes, resulting in a use surface of 95% New Zealand wool and 5% cotton.

  • Traffic Suitable for heavy residential use and the use of corridors and castors with exceptions of stairways. Suitable for medium commercial use with exceptions of stairways, corridors or with the use of castors

    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 EN 13501-1 Bfl-s1 • ASTM D 2859/CPSC FF 1-70/FF 2-70, 16 CFR 1630

    Flame retardant performance depends on the type of foam used. 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}}

    ISO 105-B02

    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.
