TING’s luxury leather flooring re-works vintage leather belts to create a beautiful, glossy and hardwearing surface. Available by the square foot, the subtly patterned attractive material is also suitable for walls, table tops and feature areas, as well as floors.
Ting has gone to a great deal of effort to search out existing materials to create new products like your tiles. If one day in the very distant future you have no further use for your tiles, please do not discard them. Ting will be happy to take your tiles back and recycle them.
