3. Sustainability: Completely free from any organic additive and 100% recyclable terrazzo tiles greatly contribute to environmentally sustainable architecture and building design.

4. Unlimited Design Possibilities: Design options are endless due to customization of colours and aggregate sizes, which makes every piece unique.
