MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION
On this page you can read more about the materials we produce in and how we treat our products.
It is very important to us that we never compromise on the materials we use and everything is carefully tested to ensure that it lives up to what we want to focus on, namely that mats from Tica should last for all seasons, all rooms and for many years.
The rugs, mats, runners are made of polyamide, which is a soft nylon material, a very durable and water absorbent material. Despite strong sunlight, they keep their colours well.
The back is made of vinyl without phalates, which is very durable and makes the carpet lie well and stable on the floor. It does not stain and can withstand underfloor heating.
Belgium has a long experience in the production of this type of mats and carpets and we have been working with the same factory for a number of years. The factory is ISO 9001 certified and complies with all EU environmental regulations. The factory is also REACH certified. REACH is the EU's common chemicals legislation and has been called the strictest of its kind in the world. Its aim is to ensure that the products you buy in the EU are not harmful to people or the environment.
Durable quality with edges that won't crack
The shoe trays are moulded in metal moulds made from 60% recycled rubber in South India, mainly from tyres that are remelted and residues from other rubber products such as baskets. The rest is natural rubber produced in India. Rubber is a tough and solid material, so the shoe trays will last for many years. The material is also soft, so the edges won't crack even if you step on them.
Sits firmly on the floor, won't slide on any floor
Rubber is a relatively heavy material, which means that the shoe trays lie well and stably on the floor, no matter what the floor is, so they don't slide around on the floor. The shoe trays are also resistant to underfloor heating.
