Tarpi have found us a latex free carpet from a Dutch company, made using wool from New Zealand. Their buyer has been exceptionally helpful and very thorough and as I have a type one latex allergy we are delighted to be able to get a carpet at all

Reebok, total dead loss, haven't got a clue (don't even know that natural rubber contains Latex)  
 
She told me the trainers I was referring to didn't contain Latex and that only natural rubber was used..

Ultimate Industrial Ltd UCi are going on my list as the best manufacturer I've come into contact with (even though they gave me news that the gloves I had bought contained latex)  
Jen gave me an immediate response to warn me (less than an hour) and has been on today after speaking to the guys running the production line and has told me exactly where the latex is and is putting together a list of Latex free work gloves as alternatives for me.

Didn't answer my question and gave me a bizarre answer.
