So Durable, Kashmira Comes with a Five-Year Limited Warranty
Everyone talks about durability, but what really constitutes durability? Fabric durability is determined by a “double rub” count. Essentially, the fabric is rubbed back and forth multiple times to replicate the effects of normal use. Including sitting and standing.
It’s rubbed until there are signs of significant wear. Three thousand double rubs are considered equal to one year of use. The higher the number of double rubs, the more durable and long-lasting the fabric. Durability is typically coded as HHH, MMM, LLL, and DDD. The chart shows what those codes mean.
