ARABICO

Like PALLADIANO, the ARABICO finish is made from pure Grassello di Calce, a limestone found in the Piave river outside Venice, and the precious finely-ground Carrara marble.

Our skilled and expert artisans created this beautiful finish of black & silver ARABICO for our newest collection. To achieve this design pattern, movement and marble-like effect, a minimum of 4 layers are required. Pietra Viva recommends the use of ARABICO only for interiors. The luxurious marble-like finish of ARABICO gives the walls a wonderfully old world with a modern 3D effect.
