Prep Tiles

Prep Tiles by Tretford are colorful and versatile carpet tiles that are made in Ireland from 70% goat hair and 30% nylon. Each tile features a unique ribbed construction that creates fabulous clean lines that will update the design of any space, from residential to commercial. We love the color range Prep Tiles come in and the fact that they are easy to install and have amazing durability. 

Prep Tiles are only sold in full boxes and cost $907 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.

Prep is also available as a broadloom for wall-to-wall installation or as wallcovering.
