If I did facilitate any under my direction it would always as a thick tile or paver system.
I have only co-facilitated folks that have chosen to do these and the minimum thickness I would suggest is 100mm, and they did have cracking issues.
Fibers yes, though you could get "fuzzing" and would need to sand smooth the floor. Hemp, hog hair, or recycled polypropylene are some possibilities.
I use wood almost exclusively as this is the most cost effective in most areas...Have you broken down you square meter cost yet of both of these side by side...including your labor?
