The Hammock Tub and Basin are made of solid surface material. Solid Surface is a man-made material, composed of a blend of natural minerals and synthetic or plant-based resins. The mixture is seamlessly moulded so that there are no joins in the bath body. The popularity of this material is due to its silken, luxurious texture, durability, strength and ability to hold the heat in the water.
The Alabaster Tub and Basin are pure white and the natural colour of the solid surface. Ebony and Dove baths and basins are fully painted over the solid surface material by a special adhesive paint for use on solid surface materials. The Flower Bathtub and Hammock Basin are hand-painted on the outside surface and alabaster on the inside.
