Travertine cutting
Vein cut and cross cut refers to the direction of cut, the first is perpendicular to the stratification instead the second is parallel to the stratification.

The cutting of travertine is very important as the final result is so different that suggests two different materials, even if they come from the same block. The vein cut, the most common type, shows marked and clear streaks, the layers of sediment run lengthwise. The cross cut, also known as “fleuri-cut and increasingly used, shows patterns that are often circular in shape revealing flowery, the so-called “nuvolature”.

The filling
“Filled” or “unfilled” terms pertain to the stone’s voids / porous / holes.
Unfilled travertine means that travertine is not treated therefore it remains in its natural porous state. The holes are exposed creating a rustic-looking finish. Filled travertine means that the travertine’s pores are filled with colour-matched material (cement, mastic, resin), creating a smooth homogenous surface. The filling can be technical, raising the level of resistance and compactness of the travertine, decorative, according to the finishes desired.

Appearance
The unique textures make it looks timeless, the low colour variation allows each tile to blend perfectly with the next, creating a smooth and sophisticated composition. 

Variety
Travertine comes in multiple finishes and colour that are suitable for different usage areas.
