‘Travertino’ – probably most recognized Italian term in the world of decor – derives its name from the name of a Roman village, Tibur and is one of the icons of Italian decor since ancient times. With this decorative lime plaster – due to it’s grit size and excellent natural binders – it’s easy to achieve a variety of looks from slightly worn through porous, to smooth, pitted, dragged, slate or stone cladding-like. Furthermore, it’s extremely suitable for contemporary (slightly) textured, cement or concrete features.

The walls and ceilings covered with ‘Travertino’ are suitable for interiors and exteriors, are water permeable (breathable), resistant to algae and mould and are completely natural.

Travertino comes in 2 bases: ready-mixed, which is ready to apply and powder. Powder or ‘Travertino Dry’ should be mixed with water before the application can start. Please call our sales team if you need Travertino Dry in white.
