Travertine is a sedimentary rock with a distinctive feel and texture and an affluent architectural history. The Romans used it to build the Coliseum, and it's also used in the walls of castles, churches, monuments, bath complexes and aqueducts across the globe. The colors of natural travertine tile vary from ivory and golden hues to salmons, soft beiges and browns.
Each tile is beautifully crafted by nature with striking patterns, crevices and remarkable veining. Travertine tile is available in diverse matte or glossy finishes. Travertine products usually have the following finishes: Tumbled, Honed, Brushed, Filled, Filled & Honed, Chiseled, Bush Hammered, Polished. Chiseled Travertine refers to the edges while all the other finishes refer to the actual surface. Combinations are also possible such as Chiseled & Honed, Chiseled & Brushed or Honed & Filled & Chiseled.

The geological complexity of stone results in natural variation from tile to tile; this is why all natural products exhibit their own individual characteristics. Whereas we work closely with suppliers to select our stone and take great care to show representative displays, images and samples, a degree of natural variation is beyond our control and will inevitably occur. This is part of the beauty of natural stone. To help appreciate the extent of any variation, it is important that you view as much stone as possible before placing your order and ensure enough stone is ordered initially, including extra, as batch variation may occur between orders.
