Carmen Red granite is a natural stone originally found Finland and quarried in the regions of Virolahti, Vilkkilä, from where it is exported to the UK and Europe.
It presents a delicate red background with black minerals, small and medium sized grains in darker coloured intrusions, forming a consistent pattern that offers unparalleled natural beauty and strength to interior and exterior architectural areas alike.
Carmen Red is an extremely versatile material that is available in different finishes including honed polished, Anticato and bush hammered that enables different looks suiting relevant design environments.
Carmen Red granite is suitable for use in kitchens, walls and floorings. It requires little maintenance whilst providing sophisticated looks in both interior and exterior applications that require natural stone that offers a refined appearance with incredible performance characteristics and strength.
