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.

Fujian - One of the most culturally and linguistically diverse regions of China, Fujian was up until recently one of the most isolated due to its mountainous terrain. Well known for its production of Chinese tea it is also a direct link to Taiwan which sits just 180 kilometres away across the Taiwan strait.
Basalt - is one of the most common rock types in the world. This fine-grained volcanic rock is made up of components of oceanic crust and is usually grey to black in colour but, can rapidly weather to brown or rust-red due to oxidation.
