How Marble is Crafted

Marble or ‘Marmo’ as the Italians call it, has existed for years, hidden in the quarries in three regions of Northern and Central Italy: Tuscany, Lombardy, and Veneto. The concentrated presence of these quarries encouraged craftsmen to establish their workshops in proximity. With empirical knowledge of the locally produced marble, the craftsmen have produced inspiring marble decorative, furniture and lighting pieces.

The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually determined by the various mineral impurities. As a result, there are no two identical designs, like a fingerprint. Even though colors might seem similar, there’s no other piece of marble with the exact same veining which makes this material truly unique.
