Calacatta Gold in Production

calacatta-productionCalacatta Gold 12×12″ Polished being produced the current price is $16.95 a Sq.Ft.

This lot is clearly not available on the date I am writing this post October 20th 2016 as it is in Italy. But within about 3-4 weeks it will be packed up and in Alpharetta.

It is a challenge getting this specific look. We look for larger bands of veining as opposed to the spidery veining that some blocks of Calacatta Gold can have. Both are appealing just this is a specific look we have decided upon.

In time we will likely stock more than one type of Calacatta Gold so we can cover both veining options. This will go along with the new warehouse facility opening in Spring 2016.

calacatta-12x12-being-madeAnother angle of the Calacatta Gold 12×12″ going through production. Here is a better look at the veining we aim for, wide bands of veining. This is more difficult to find compared to the spider veined Calacatta Gold. Boots on the ground in Italy help us ensure the quality, even if they are yellow ones 🙂

Calacatta is a very, very tricky product to buy in field tiles. In Calacatta Gold Mosaics it is simple as it is a mix. But tiles are more complex. You can reduce the complexity by over ordering. A premium Calacatta Gold as we see here in production is $60 to $120 a Square Foot through traditional brick and mortar stores.

We are selling it for $16.95 a Square Foot. Given the almost ridiculous price difference I would advise significantly over ordering. Then you have choice. You can create the exact look you want. You may decide to order twice what you need, that would then cost you just under $40.00 a Square Foot. You save a huge amount of money and you have complete control over the product you can choose which tiles make your short list and which do not.

(Please note you cannot go through the tile and then return what you do not want. The objective of a return is for us to re-sell it to another customer. Just as you would not someone else’s rejects please do not make us sell your rejects. Treat people as you would expect to be treated. It is a simple sentence but as a country or even world we seem to have forgotten how important those words are).

*Prices are subject to change at the time of this post this was the price. Calacatta has more price fluctuation than regular Carrara sue to it’s limited availability.
