First discovered by the Italians,  Terrazzo has been around for hundreds of years and is an ancient technique that was used for flooring, walls, countertops and benchtops. Traditionally, terrazzo was typically made from a mixture of recycled glass, marble chips, granite and quartz that is then laid into a concrete bed and then polished to give its smooth and lustre appearance.
