The carpet tiles are made in Ireland from 70% goat hair and 30% nylon and have been trusted by architects, specifiers and flooring specialists for years. 

What makes Prep ECO Tiles a green product? Each Prep ECO Tile is backed with recycled polyester felt and then with natural latex, so they are PVC free. You can view the green certification here.  

Prep ECO Tiles are only sold in full boxes and cost $1039 per box. The tiles are 19.5" square and one box contains 20 tiles, covering 53 square feet or 6 square yards. Note: These tiles are fabricated in Ireland and thus, will have a longer lead time.
