Scabos, our most vibrant and multi-coloured travertine, is only available from one place in the world: Afyon province in Turkey (Afyon is Turkish for opium). It’s highly variegated patterning makes it ideal for use in kitchens and front entrance ways, greeting you and your guests with a sense of exotic warmth. Because of its elaborate patterning, it will always feel like a clean surface.
Its colour variation is predominately golden with bold washes of browns, reds, crystallized creams, and occasional 'poppy seeds' of black.
Our cobbled-edge version tends to get greater colour variation with some pieces being composed entirely of alabaster-like crystal or deep burgundy reds. It comes in a pre-packaged 4-size pattern designed to instill a true 'old world' feel.
