At Avant stone, we like to stay at the forefront of trends and styles. One trend that is becoming more and more popular is the textured finish, especially for harder wearing materials such as Quartzites and Granites. At Avant Stone we stock some of the best leathered Granite and Quartzite Slabs in Sydney. The physical feeling of a textured finish on a natural stone creates a unique feeling where one can truly feel the earthy heartiness of the stone. This growth in popularity trend can add an extra dimension to the room particularly to a room with a rustic vibe.

Only certain stones work well with a leathered finish. Usually, "harder" stones such as granites and quartzites but some marbles are also suitable. This finish occurs at the supplier's factory when they are either honing or polishing the slabs. A leather surface is textured by diamond tipped brushes which create small hills and valleys within the stone and can sometimes follow the grain on tougher stones.

The popularity of this stone can be traced back to the rise and dominance of the quartz market. Quartz has done a very good job at replicating the colour and veins of natural stone such as marble. The option of textured finishes becoming available however, this is something the quartz industry has not been able to successfully replicate to the same feel and touch of natural stone.

The use of these stones is not limited either. The finish actually creates a higher resistance to absorption than a normal honed finish. The textured finish creates a higher slip rating than honed but is still smooth to touch, so it is perfect for flooring in areas such as living areas and even bathrooms. Not only that but the finish hides scratches and etches much better than a honed surface, and so it is even more suitable for kitchen and vanity benchtops.

Avant Stone takes great pride in the quality of material we import, as we focus on quality rather than quantity, so we are able to individually inspect each batch of natural stone. We have been purchasing stone for 23 years now and have reputable suppliers across Italy and the world where we not only get beautiful looking stone, but structurally excellent that will last the test of time.
