Our Range & Their Source
As you can probably imagine it is possible to get nearly all of our natural stones from a number of different countries around the globe... However, consistency and supply for demand are two extremely important factors and these tend to be honoured for much longer periods of time by countries that have the biggest quarries. You'll find that some countries tend to hold the majority of quarries for certain types of stone. For instance, Turkey alone could provide the world travertine for the next 80 years with their seemingly endless supply or quarries! In this blog post, we would like to give some information about the source of our beautiful tiles.
Travertine is definitely one of the most popular natural stones in the world. Not only for its unique structure, but also for its versatility. This range can be used in bathrooms, hallways, kitchens, bedrooms... pretty much any area of the house you can think of! All the travertine we have in our vast range comes from Turkey and includes not only different grades such as our Ivory and Classic travertine which suits all budgets, but also a variety of different sizes and patterns. With our mosaics and split-face tiles you can create that perfect feature wall or border! Our travertine ranges also come in a number of different colours. With the Silver, Noce and Walnut travertine ranges leaving you spoiled for choice. Let's also not forget about the Silver & Ivory external paving range for outdoor installation if your patio is in need of a little TLC.
Our collection of marble tiles also come from Turkey. These include some of the most world renowned marble variants such as the Carrara White, Botticino, Crema Marfil and Silver Tundra, but the list doesn't end there! Check out the marble section on our website to see the variety of options we have. The most interesting aspect of our marbles are the sizes, they come in a number of innovative shapes such as hexagons, chevrons and herringbone's. Marble as a whole tends to exude sophistication so with these exciting new shapes it really does give them that additional edge! As well as this they are also available in mosaics and split-face formats as mentioned in the travertine section of this blog.
Turkey as a country displays a vast number of high quality natural stone products and their endless supply never seems to disappoint, if you're looking for the perfect stone for your renovation we would highly recommend you check out our travertine and marble products.
Our Limestones are slightly more diverse in the sense that we don't source all of them from the same country as each of our products have a unique look. The Middle East, Turkey, India and Portugal are the homes of our Limestone products. Our Jerusalem Antique Gold has some beautiful gold undertones whilst the Moca Cream contains warm distinct lines which make them very popular for designers looking to show the natural beauty of limestone. But on the other hand, if you're looking for a more simplistic design then our Antalya Limra will give you that pure creamy white vibe perfect for a variety of settings. The differences in these limestone means that what we can source from one country would most likely not be available in another country. Limestones do tend to be one of the most porous stones, however this shouldn't make it any less suitable for you projects than its counterparts. As long as it is installed and looked after correctly then Limestone can give your bathroom or kitchen that glowing revamp you've been looking for.
