Crema Bordeaux granite is a natural stone originally found in Brazil and quarried in the region of Espirito Santo, from where it is exported to the UK and Europe.
It presents a yellowy background with hints of burgundy; small and medium sized grains and shades of earthy brown and beige minerals, forming a consistent pattern that offers unparalleled natural beauty and strength to interior and exterior architectural areas alike.
Crema Bordeaux (also known as Juperana Bordeaux granite) 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.
Crema Bordeaux 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.
