When your rugs arrived to the offices of my client on Piccadilly we were bowled over by the exceptional quality and finish of them. [...] I am so glad I discovered you and your company and intend to do more projects together in the future.
"For four years, thousands of visitors have been walking on the coconut carpet, which has not shown any signs of wear so far. The soft underside has protected the floor perfectly, we are very satisfied and can recommend the material."
Custom-made products to protect historic floors
The beautiful historic building of the Eltz hilltop castle in the Eifel has around 250,000 visitors a year. That's no small strain on the historic floors. Other solutions call for permanently mounted protective elements, for which you have to drill into the ground. Since the floor gets damaged this way, it is a rather poor compromise.
Our solution to this is our natural fiber carpets with fleece coating, an invention from our own company. Stylish sisal rugs and timeless coir rugs are provided with a natural fiber fleece on the underside using a needling process, which means that these products do not contain chemicals like adhesives. They are extremely durable and meet the many needs of historic buildings.
These carpets lie firmly and securely thanks to their weight. The very robust coconut fiber withstands the strain of the crowds of visitors. Since the runners and carpets are made entirely of natural fibers, they can later be easily disposed of, since they are completely biodegradable.
