Prep by Tretford is made in Ireland from 80% goat hair, 15% nylon and 5% viscose. It is perfect for residential or heavy contract use. We love Prep's color range and its amazing durability. Prep can be left unbound with a straight edge that will not unravel. Many of our clients enjoy this weave for its versatility and endless color options. Different colors, stripes and fun shapes can be seamed together to create an amazingly unique rug.
Prep is extremely durable and can be installed in offices, banks, shops, showrooms, universities, colleges, schools, sports centers, hospitals, institutions, hotels, residential homes, airports, ticket offices, reception areas and lounges.
Note: Rugs with multiple colors seamed together are fabricated in Ireland and will have a longer lead time!
Broadloom for wall-to-wall installation costs $120 per sq yd. The roll width is 6' 7". For more information or to create a custom rug, see our rug builder below. Freight is free with all rug orders.
We also stock this weave in our European facility.
