In Valence, France. A new production factory for the United States is underway.
What are the mats made from?
Our mats are 100% PVC vinyl, 100% recyclable and completely Phthalate free. The mats are also compliant with the CFR standards for child safety and have passed a multitude of tests for resistance and durability.
How do I know what size mat is good for me?
Check out our sizing and placement page! There you can view our size chart and read about placement ideas according to the certain sizes and shapes made available.
Can the mats have an undesirable reaction with the flooring underneath?
Our mats have been tested and proved to not have any certain reactions to the flooring underneath. Like with any rug, make sure the flooring underneath and the vinyl mat are dry (i.e. after mopping/cleaning) before using the mat in order to avoid any built-up moisture.
Are the mats compatible with heated flooring?
Yes, the mats can be used on heated flooring.
Can the mats be used outside?
Our mats are mostly suited for the indoors in order to avoid discoloration from direct sunlight and aggressive weather conditions. The mats could therefore be placed in a shaded/protected outdoor terrace or patio if desired.
How should the mats be cleaned?
The mats are easily wiped clean with water and gentle soap. Avoid using bleach or any harsh soaps in order to maintain the vividness of the mat’s colors and design. If the mat is very damp after a more thorough cleaning, let it dry completely before placing it on the floor.
How often do new designs come out?
Twice a year! We work with two catalogues; one for spring and summer and the second for fall and winter.
