Canyon Crest features time-worn, time-textured looks that heighten the elegance and rustic charm of this gorgeous, green collection. These styles are already a work of art, as well as a technological marvel with a superior green story: Canyon Crest is the first 8″ solid plank made 100% from recycled mill by-products. The premium solid wood is painstakingly hand-scraped, a process that reveals the handsomely defined grain pattern. Stylish colors and fresh texture emphasizes the natural wood grain and makes a bold statement of style or this collection. The texture technique involves side-to-side and horizontal scraping, which creates an effect like quarter-sawn wood – a late 19th century technique used in very fine floors. This beautiful scraped texture – only able to be done by hand – results in a brindled coloration like that found in nature.
