With the increasing demand for more honed and natural looks in kitchens, bathrooms and other interior areas, Silestone, a popular quartz surface brand manufactured by the Cosentino Group, includes the option of having Suede texture across several of its popular colours and designs. The Suede texture adds a smooth, velvety feel to the quartz surfaces with unique design aesthetics which make them look great in contemporary kitchens and bathrooms since the matt look brings out the best of patterns and veins on its materials. The Suede texture is quite different from the Polished or the Volcano finish, which are also offered by the Company. While the Polished finish offers a glossier surface, the Volcano finish is much more textured and grainier than the Suede.
