Wide is an exciting new direction in tile technology! Using an intricate "micro texture" that is only visible up close, the manufacturer has created a tile that almost absorbs light in the same was as traditional honed Brazilian slate does. However, honed slate, which is one of the most beautiful surfaces in the tile industry, is incredibly delicate and shows scratches simply as a result of the smoothness of the material. La Nova is very proud to carry inventory of not only the 12" x 24" and 24" x 24" profile in the natural finish, but also the 48" x 96" profile as well! We are even carrying a limited quantity of the antislip texture known as "Strutt" seen below.
