Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why use premium fabrics?
The utilisation of a premium fabric is dual sided, it means that the dog bed's cover is going to last longer. All fabrics we use are commercial grade and designed for high usage. This benefits your dog, and also the environment as covers aren't replaced frequently. The majority of our fabrics are also used by leading furniture suppliers, so in many cases your dog's bed can match the couch or your favourite piece of furniture.

What is a rub-test?
A rub test is essentially a test of how many rubs a square inch can take, before
how many times a material can be rubbed on the same spot before it is worn through in general usage (note, a dog's claws don't count!). This test separates commercial and non-commercial fabrics.

How tough are they?
We select our fabrics for their heavy duty rating. This is a technical rating and we use this as a requirement for any fabric that gets used in the PlushMat! range. It doesn't mean it's indestructible by any measure, but it means its stronger and has a heavier basis than standard fabrics.

What gives fabric texture?
Texture in fabrics is given by the millions of loops in the weave of the fabric, that are invisible to the eye. These give the body of the fabric a texture, which can be manipulated during the fabrics weaving to make it appear softer, to weave it in a lined or patterned feel or to make it feel rougher and more textured.

What is a cut pile fabric and why is it best for dogs that drop hair?
A cut pile fabric has had all of the loops from the top of the fabric cut off during the manufacturing process. This creates a soft, velour or velvety feel. This is perfect for dogs that drop hair as what a dog's hair will get caught on is the millions of loops. The level of texture in a fabric has a direct correlation to the amount of hair that can get caught.
