The GRAFFIATO finish draws upon the wear and tear of old monuments and historic buildings in Rome.  Worn down yet beautiful, the GRAFFIATO is a perfect finish for an elegently rustic residence.

The application of GRAFFIATO is complex and demands all of the skillful experience of the artisan, since there are four steps to the build-up process. Due to the stone-aged-like grain of the material, the finish must be uniformly applied in order to create a seamless effect. Made from the porous grains of Carrara marble, it can be used for both interiors and exteriors.
