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.

In Egyptian culture, the Apis bull was a sacred animal, revered for its toughness. Drawing from its namesake, our Apis stone is highly durable. Light in colour, the Apis Sinai Grey is an alluring mix of natural chips and etches, giving it a timeless feel that fits with the history of its origins.
As versatile as it is unique, the stone is heat resistant while boasting a low water absorption rate, meaning it’s suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
• Durable and break-resistant
• Light in colour and tone
• Sun resistant for outdoor use

“Sinai Grey features a tapestry of natural chips and etches that gives it a true air of distinction we think you will love.”
