Granite: unparalleled hardness
Granite reconciles the unique beauty of nature with its indomitable power. It is a natural stone, meaning geological processes have determined its character for centuries. The result is a product that is never 100% the same. The colour palette, the patterns, … each slab is different, surprising, and authentic.
With over a century of experience and counting, we are true granite experts. Our specialists select the granite from both our own quarries (in France, Norway, Portugal, and South Africa) and other quarries worldwide. In addition, our geological team subjects all materials to a strict quality control. We combine this quality guarantee with a very thorough knowledge of all the technical properties, applications and finishing possibilities of this material.
Variety of applications
Even after mining, granite lives on. It gets more beautiful over time. With its exceptional hardness and limited porosity, granite has plenty of time for this. These technical properties form the basis for decades of resistance to water, frost, and wear. This makes granite suitable for a wide variety of applications.
Choose the design that best suits you
Granite creates a special visual effect through the unique interplay of lines, shading, and structures. Sometimes speckled, sometimes uniform, but always so different, so unique. This unpredictability is characteristic of a product that was modelled by nature. It is also a versatile material for various uses that add an aesthetic value to your interior and exterior.
That this ancient material is also offered in various sizes, standard thicknesses of 2 or 3 cm (and up to 20 cm upon request) and a broad range of possible surface finishes ensures a completely personal touch.

A selection of our finishes
The finishes shown here are a selection of the surface finishes Brachot offers as standard. We are also constantly developing new finishes and optimising existing ones, which means we always find the finish that best suits the material, your tastes, and the style of your home.
Without a doubt, the glossiest and smoothest finish, highlighting the colours, patterns, and white spots. Dark shades create a mirror effect.
The surface is scoured until a warm, matt shine is obtained. The grain size during scouring determines the final result.
This semi-coarse finish is slightly coarser than a matt or polished finish, but still feels very satisfying and soft. The non-slip result still has a beautiful satin shine to it.
This original, matt, and slightly brushed finish enhances the natural colour of granite. The result is a ‘leather feel’.
Opting for durable quality
Granite is the hardest of all types of natural stone. As a result, this natural material is highly scratch, heat, acid, and stain-resistant, making it ideal to withstand decades of intensive use. Granite is also very maintenance-friendly. With the right cleaning and protection products, adapted to the use, soiling, and surface coarseness, this natural stone will remain intact for many years.
On top of that, the durability of granite is more than just a very long lifespan. Granite is also an environmentally friendly product that is only shaped by the power of nature. So it doesn’t need any energy for its production. CO₂ emissions during installation and production are also low. And because it is 100% recyclable, granite can be reused for a wide variety of applications.
