A new breed of carpet replacement that uses synthetic fibers has been on the market for about a year.
But some homeowners may want to replace their carpet with something they can actually hold in their hands.
Kelsey’s Calf Conditioner uses a unique chemical formulation to create a synthetic surface that will absorb and repel dirt.
Kerner is a startup based in Seattle that manufactures the new carpeting for carpet installers.
“We started off with a traditional carpeting material, which is usually made from a synthetic fiber like wool or a synthetic plant material,” Kerner CEO Chris Wysocki said.
“And so we thought, well, if we can actually actually use the fiber in a carpeting product, why not use it to make a new carpet?”
“This is really a different kind of product,” Wysocksocki added.
“It’s not just an ‘if-you-know-what-you’re-supposed-to-do’ product, it’s a really important piece of carpeting.”
The new carpet is actually made of two layers of wood.
The first layer is synthetic fiber, which Kerner says will repel and retain dirt, but will also be durable enough to withstand the elements.
“This material is a really unique material that we thought would be able to offer a lot of the durability of traditional carpet,” Kerners head of product development, Michael G. Baskins, told ABC News.
“If you could get a piece of this material to sit in your pocket or under your bed, you could really have a nice, nice carpet.”
Wysocksocksi told ABC that kerner is now working with companies in other countries to make the product.
“I would like to see a global market,” he said.
Kerner has also made a few other products, including a plastic version of Kerner’s carpet.
Kers owner, Kerner founder Michael Baskis, told The Associated Press that the company is currently working on an expanded version of the carpet, which he says will be made of more durable materials.
“The goal of the new Kerner carpet is to provide homeowners with a carpet that will be able, with minimal effort, to provide a carpet surface that can withstand the stresses of the daily lives of their family,” Baskings told ABC.
“We think this product can be a significant advancement in the way that we care for our carpet.”
