In terms of its origin, Italy is the country in which the Terrazzo look started in the 18th Century. There are also other precedents, that go back as far as the Egyptian civilization. The Italians used to place pieces of marble one next to the other in a base. It was made from glue or mortar which was completed by polishing its surfaces.
Terrazzo manufacturers create pre-cast slabs that result from mixing natural stones such as marble, granite and limestone with other raw minerals and epoxy resins that result in products with unique beauty that look and feel like natural stones but with improved performance characteristics in terms of the wide availability of materials, colours and finishes; as well as it easier maintenance regime. Pre-Cast Terrazzo marble slabs generally cover an area of approximately 4.5 square meters, offering the possibility of creating seamless panels and worktops with minimalist looks.
