The gloss of polished cotto floors enhances the natural elegance of the living material.
Traditionally the cotto slabs in the houses of the rich were polished individually by hand using an abrasive stone. The result was a perfectly smooth, glossy surface and today examples of floors of this type may still be admired in many old homes. Now this same process, once carried out on floors during installation, may now be achieved by polishing the slabs individually directly at the factory using special machinery. This processing technique is possible thanks to the hardness and compactness of Cotto Imprunetino.
Floor Tiles and Special Items
One of the most widespread uses of polished cotto is in the restoration of prestigious ambient. Thanks to its brilliance and precision sizing it is increasingly used in contemporary architecture.
Polished, ground and bevelled
Idros is a polished tile which is particularly suitable for close-joint laying, thanks to its ground and bevelled edges. The precision of the dimensions also make them ideal for use in environments of minimalist inspiration.
