The «Aquasoft» quality has a soft, light and supple appearance. It looks like and has the same feel of cotton. The colours have a matt finish. Premium Polypropylene fibres have very good characteristics in terms of colour fastness and resistance. The aquasoft quality is adapted to residential projects, or even to moderate traffic, depending on the choice of the backing.
The «Aquastrong» quality is thicker and more rustic than the aquasoft quality. It is made from large polyester fibre ropes that give a technical aspect to the rugs. The use of fancy yarns make them truly modern. Aquastrong quality has excellent properties for outdoor use, with ideal certifications for use from residential to heavy traffic and contract. This quality is also perfectly suited for yachting and spas.
