The craftsmanship of tumbled stone that Petra Antiqua has always executed is created from the warmth of tradition and from a past of experiences and memories. Skilfully smoothed and polished by expert hands without using acids or chemicals, the marble in this collection takes on a natural old look, which expresses the richness of a distressed element, with rounded edges and surface worn by the action of the water and the pieces rubbing together.
Characterized by a smooth surface and the beautiful colours inspired by nature, the finish of the Anticato Cerato Collection is smooth to the touch. The edge of the tiles is slightly rounded and the effect of this old-looking stone is reached by brushing the surface. The material reaches the customer already Pre-treated through a hot process, with hydro-wax and oil-repellent.
The Surfaces Collection was born from the surface work executed on the tiles to create various textures and simple motifs; this is the proof of the constant creative research by Petra Antiqua. From skilled craftsmanship and natural stone, selected carefully with passion and knowledge, a surface treatment is created to reveal the fascination of the surprising nature and human ingenuity in every detail.
