What does the D stand for in 1200D or 1680D?

The 'D' stands for 'Denier'. The denier is the strength of the outer layer of your rug. The higher the denier, the stronger the outer will be and the more likely the rug will be to last a long time. Generally, a higher denier rug will be more expensive than a lower denier rug due to this.

Canter for Cancer rugs come in 1200 and 1680 denier. We have chosen not to stock 600 denier rugs as we have found they tend to come to the end of their life sooner compared to a higher denier rug. Our aim is to provide you with functional rugs at an affordable price.
