Our story


Designer Clay Plaster

Colorful elegance with all the benefits of clay

Clay plaster, with its timeless natural advantages, has existed for thousands of years. However, 30 years ago, we revolutionized this art by mixing colorful clays and fine sands, resulting in the first 100% natural decorative coloured clay plaster Tierrafino Finish. Our artisanal production process, with strict quality control, ensures that each handmade sample reflects nature’s highest standards.
