Southern Tuscany is the land of the Etruscans.
There is a real sense of their presence in the landscape, the remains of the towns and cities, necropoli and their art. The Etruscans prized beauty.
The Vero Etruria collection is based on purity of form and richness of material.
The Designer’s concepts have been interpreted by a master sculptor based in Volterra, the centre of alabaster craftsmanship in Italy, using traditional techniques and the finest materials.

Alabaster is composed of bi-hydrated calcium sulphate and it has a hardness between 2,2 and 2,5 on the Mohs scale. Being a delicate and relatively soft and porous stone, it should not be kept in direct contact with adverse atmospheric conditions, nor too close to sources of heat.
Our products are treated with oil and wax, they should be dusted lightly with a slightly damp, soft brush or cloth then left to dry naturally. They can then be polished using a neutral oil which should be applied with a brush. Once the oil has been absorbed, any excess can be removed with a soft cloth.
