As its name suggests, the surface collection is designed by Clayworks to resemble rammed earth – a sustainable and ancient building technique that relies on natural materials.
It is intended for use on internal walls and made entirely from natural clays, minerals, sands, making it an eco-friendly alternative to traditional wall coverings.
“Made, like the real thing, from 100 per cent natural clays, minerals, sands and coloured with natural earth pigments, this surface material is able to achieve the authenticity and feel of monolithic rammed earth,” explained the brand.
The Rammed Earth Finishes clay plasters are applied with a thickness of 10 millimetres and can be made in a variety of tones using natural pigments.
According to Clayworks, the available colours allow architects and designers to replicate different styles of rammed earth that are used around the world.
“Rammed Earth Finishes can be created in endless possibilities of colours and textures, often in response to a desire by architects and designers to replicate local geological conditions or to evoke cultural connections from Islamic, Native American, African, Moorish, Persian or Chinese vernacular architecture,” Clayworks said.
Like other surfacing products by Clayworks, the Rammed Earth Finishes plasters are compostable and are free from toxic ingredients, VOCs or formaldehyde.
Their 10-millimetre thickness also helps to regulate humidity and temperature of the space in which they are used, and absorb toxins, odours and acoustics.
