The cut and loop pile creates dimension and surface interest. An exciting feature is that it is finished with MicroSeal. MicroSeal is a stain protectant that penetrates the yarn. This seal makes liquid bead up on the surface of the rug, allowing for more time to clean up any spills. Additional benefits include protection from soiling, stain resistance, easier to clean, protection from UV rays and fading, preserves fiber and prevents wear.
