About the NTMA


Why Terrazzo?

Terrazzo was originally created in Italy over 500 hundred years ago by Venetian workers searching for a way to use discarded marble remnants – making it one of the world’s first “green” flooring systems! In keeping with its original premise of recycle/reuse, today’s terrazzo installations combine exceptional beauty, extreme design flexibility, durability to last the life of the building, and incredible ease of maintenance with the best practices of sustainable building.

Endless Design Possibilities with Terrazzo

Elegant and timeless, with endless design possibilities, Terrazzo has proven to endure and perform for more than 500 years. Today’s terrazzo is an environmentally friendly material with optimum durability and low maintenance. Terrazzo can consist of marble, quartz, granite aggregate, mother-of-pearl and/or pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled glass, porcelain and mirror chips, which are mixed with cement or epoxy and polished to produce a smooth, uniformly textured surface for floors, walls, stairs, curbs, counter-tops and even ceilings.
