Description

For that truly one of a kind project, look no further than Total Contrast by Paragon Carpet Tiles.


The carpet tile is manufactured with “A, B, C and D” designs, which means there is a different pattern across the four tiles, which is then repeated.


With this being the case, Total Contrast can be randomly laid in all installations, with each of the four tile patterns being positioned in different directions on the floor. The random lay effect means that no two Total Contrast projects will look identical, with each having its own unique design.


Each of the six colours in the Total Contrast range is also manufactured using 'solution-dyed' 'ECONYL' yarn, from our partners, Aquafil.


ECONYL is the brand name for Aquafil's recycled fishing net products, which the company rescues from oceans and landfill sites across the world. From there, it is recycled back to its original form, making a product that is the same as unused nylon.


Alongside the yarn, the backing used on Total Contrast, as with all other Paragon Carpet Tiles products, is 'Envirobase', manufactured from a minimum of 75% recycled contents.


Overrall, Total Contrast is one of the most environmentally friendly carpet tiles available on the market.
