Terrazzo, as subtle as it sounds hails its origin from the country of Italy that is home to many famous structures and is known all around the globe for its rich diversity in the field of art and architecture. The history of this auspicious material can be traced back in the Egyptian and Turkish cultures where it was known for its premium and sublime quality. Terrazzo was formed accidentally yet in a remarkable fashion when the workers in the city of Venice, Italy decided to grind the oddly shaped marble leftover after jobs in clay with a tool called ' Galera '. The Terrazzo was known to show its colours only when it was wet until it was discovered that a tinch of milk gave it the real upbeat colour. It was then, the outrageous introduction of white Portland cement which allowed for a limitless variety of colourful terrazzos that is in use in today's modern world. From monochromatic minimalism to brilliantly hued and extravagant patterns and mosaics, terrazzo is incredibly versatile.
Inspired by the attractive realms of the art of Italy, 'The Concrete Essentials' is a wide range of home products crafted and handmade by skilled artisans and expert craftsmen from the interiors of Uttar Pradesh in India. This ornate collection of home items is handcrafted by exposing terrazzo chips to the concrete mix of cement, admixtures, aggregates and tints by skilled artisans, in reminiscence of the long-gone Italian era of Renaissance. The collection includes tableware, vases, stationery, garden decor, multi-utility boxes and tea-light holders where the same mixture is used in different compositions giving it shapes that entails one to get lost into the incredibly diversified Italian culture of artistry from both the ancient and modern times. The most prominent attribute of durability along with a tinge of the expressive bygone culture ensures that 'The Concrete Essentials' is a delightful completion to your home decor that can only bring bundles of joy, happiness and peace around at any time throughout the year.

The overall quality of the product depends upon the quality of the mould from which it was produced and a precise mix of concrete. The mould is made out of silicone and takes about 7 days depending how complicated the piece is to make. We then do casting in the mould which is then demoulded after 24 hours. The material of the product is concrete, which consisits of specially developed eco-friendly blends of fly ash, cement, terrazzo chips and tints. Terrazzo consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite or glass and is added to enhance the overall decorative look of the product. The product is then kept in water for 3-4 days from where it gains strength. Once delivered from the mould, every product undergoes rigorous inspections before being hand polished, sealed and finished with the rejection rate of 5%. All products are protected with high-performance sealant and lacquer coating, making them well protected against roughness and scratching & staining respectively, thereby giving the product a glossy finish.

Loved the product but the hanging strings are fragile and the product is heavy since it is made of terracotta. The strings should be sturdy enough to hold the weight.
I had ordered four cups and received them on time, beautifully and safely packed. These cups are a sight to behold - craftmanship and material of high quality. It is such a joy to have your tea or coffee in these beautiful cups.
These will be the cynosure of all eyes visiting my home. Very beautiful and classy!!!!

Very colourful and cute party plates.
