Velluto Finish


The Italian word “Velluto” translates to “velvet” in English. Velvet is a soft fabric characterized by a thick layer of shortcut threads on one side, known for its luxurious and smooth texture.


The Velluto finish is a velvety textured surface with a matte finish and a soft sheen, providing a sumptuous and elegant appearance. This finish offers a soft and smooth touch, resembling the texture of velvet. 

It is maintenance-friendly, making it a practical choice for various applications such as kitchen worktops, bathrooms, wall cladding, tabletops, and reception desks.

Velluto Finish Price

The Velluto finish is 10% more expensive than a polished finish, the standard for quartz surfaces. This is due to the treatment the slabs receive, which results in textures with a high level of personalization and detail.

Factors to Consider

  1. 1. Durability: Velluto and honed finishes offer high durability, but Velluto requires a thorough cleaning, and honed finishes may require periodic resealing to maintain their appearance. Leather and brushed finishes are similarly durable but may show wear over time.
  2. 2. Maintenance Requirements: Velluto and honed finishes are relatively simple to clean with soap and water. In contrast, leather and brushed finishes from natural stone worktops may require specific cleaning products and more frequent maintenance, such as resealing.
  3. 3. Aesthetic Preferences: Velluto and leather finishes provide a luxurious and tactile feel, while brushed and honed finishes offer a more natural and understated appearance. These are highly personal factors and should be given due consideration.
