For centuries, Portuguese stone craftsmen have shaped the country's cultural heritage, transforming this ancient skill into an art.
Natural stone such as marble and slate bring an earthy, organic element into a space. They’re universally loved for their one-of-a-kind quality. From piece to piece, and even on a single quarried slab, there will be certain colour variations.
Stone surfaces will have pits and fissures that appear as cracks. They result from immense heat and pressure, which formed the stone eons years ago.
These characteristics do not impair function or durability; rather they add to the beauty. And while marble, slate and natural stone are certainly quite durable, by no means should be treated as indestructible.
