How much you need? I have a pretty big section left. Maybe 4' x 6' give or take...and I may have a 4' x 8' piece untouched (ordered extra when I built the bar). Could ship UPS to spain, but have no clue how much that would cost.

If thats not enough material, you can check ebay for "Lauhala Matting" Thats where I scored mine. Was cheaper than anyplace I found online (being in CT, no local places carried it)

I can get unfinished Bamboo matting but its a bit rougher than the Lauhala and comes in 8'x4' sheets if you are interested?
