Here at Gather Co we want to ensure that the gap between your screen and our surfaces is bridged. As such, we have developed this Texture Guide to provide a general understanding of the finishes across our collection and to offer a sense of the ‘feel’ you can expect from each variety.
*Please note: This is intended as a guide only. Some surfaces may sit outside the prescribed finish as stated below. It is not a Slip Rating, you’ll find that in the “Resources and Installation” section at the bottom of each product page.

Haikou - Originally a port city, Haikou derives its name from the Chinese word for ‘seaport’ though the modern Haikou is also known by the moniker of ‘Coconut City’. With a mixture of Portuguese, French and South-Asian influences it has benefited from contact with the West since the treaty of Tianjin in 1858 opened up trade routes.
