Discover our processes, step by step.
Behind the beauty of our wood floors lies the care that goes into every step of the production process, from the raw material to the finishes, in a unique blend of technology and fine craftsmanship.
Words are not enough to convey the passion and expertise we put into each one of our creations. It’s essential to accompany the timber during the fundamental drying phase, discover just how we take care of each individual board, watch our specialised technical staff at work as they design a new floor using cutting-edge software and CNC machinery. Only then might you just be able to smell the fragrance of the forest and imagine the beauty of a unique, customised Foglie d’Oro wood floor.
Hand-crafted processes for unique floors.
Brushing, sanding, planing and antiquing, like all the other processes, are carried out strictly by hand, giving the wood surface a surprising, unique appearance every time.
The sanded surface emphasizes the grain of the wood flooring rendering it smooth and soft to the touch. This process is achieved through a special calibrating and sanding of Planks by means of specific abrasive papers.
This treatment provides that Planks are worked with special brushes that remove the most tender port of the top layer, which is the softer part of the wood, leaving only the harder one in place and opening the pore. This process highlights the wood grain to the eye and to the touch, conveying a very natural effect to the surface.
The softer part of the wood flooring surface is consumed by abrasion due to a sand and air blast through a process.The surface is therefore characterized by a multiplicity of micro incisions that gives a textured effect to the flooring.
Processing of the surface that lends a highly significant threedimensional effect. It is achieved by carving and rounding of the nodes and edges of Planks enhancing the strong structural character of the wood selected and sought for the realization of this special “lived effect”.
A special feature of our wood floors, entirely hand-made by master craftsmen. The planed surface is irregular and undulating, and under the effect of light bears a unique and exclusive look of great value and beauty, not mechanically repeatable.
The aging effect is performed entirely by hand with special tools that make the wood surface antiqued, reproducing the wear of time and of traffic. Small fake woodworm holes emphasize the characteristics of an antique wood flooring, creating a worn look.
The beauty of this kind of treatment is that one board is unlike the next. The process is carried out in a traditional way and faithfully reproduces the original cut of the saw on the wood. The traces left on the surface have a depth, orientation, and size which cannot be reproduced in the industry.
Processing carried out with the aid of the plane that generates a “rounded” effect of wear and usage of the outer areas of Planks, the most tender, creating a worn texture.
