THE STRATUM NAME: A stratum is a bed of earth with consistent composition naturally laid amid visually distinct layers. Inspired by the banded cliff edges of Eastern Washington’s stunning Palouse Canyon, Richlite Stratum embeds various plywood species between contrasting layers of paper.
Richlite Stratum Birch – Black Diamond embeds Finnish Birch Plywood between contrasting layers of Black Diamond Richlite. Richlite’s Black Diamond is a rich, velvety black.
PATINA: Richlite patinas like a natural wood product and varies from sheet to sheet. Like wood, it will mature in color, giving greater depth to the surface. Over time and with use, Richlite will develop a seasoned appearance characteristic of the material. There will be more luster in areas of heavier use. Overall, it will appear softer and deeper in tone.
SURFACE APPEARANCE: Due to the natural variation in the way fibers lay within the panel, Richlite has a mottled appearance that patterns in a lengthwise direction. This is less apparent in dark colors; however, the mottled appearance is still present.
