Vetrazzo was invented in 1996 in Berkeley. It is a line of exquisite surface materials crafted from recycled glass and used anywhere natural stone is used; countertops, tabletops, architectural cladding and more. Vetrazzo surfaces offer a stunning and lively signature for residential or commercial projects.
Vetrazzo is composed of a patented, proprietary formula that combines recycled glass with a binder of cement, additives, pigments and other recycled materials. With over 85% recycled glass content, Vetrazzo allows homeowners, architects, designers, and builders to exhibit both their style and their respect for the earth and environment. Their largest source of glass is the neighborhood curbside recycling programs. Other glass comes from post-industrial usage, windows, drinking glasses, stemware, automotive glass, stained glass, laboratory glass and other unusual sources such as decommissioned traffic light lenses. “A story in every surface”
