Lasa - a refined white marble from the Alps


Lasa is an Italian marble that is quarried in the Stelvio National Park in the Alps. Lasa is a marble with a fascinating story. The Lasa quarry is not an open quarry as we know it. Lasa is mined inside a marble mountain, in a network of tunnels and galleries that are not accessible to the public. This alone captures the imagination!

In addition, Lasa marble is known for its exceptionally pure, snow-white colour. The material consists of crystalline calcite and is approximately four hundred million years old. The material is ideal for many interior applications such as worktops, wall coverings, floors, stairs and bathrooms. Outdoor applications like façade cladding are also possible.

All these properties make this marble an exclusive and sustainable material, which is also quickly becoming a trend. Lasa catches the eye because of its simple and elegant colour palette, which makes it unique in Europe and in the range of white marble offered by Brachot. The surface features sugary, white-beige tones with brown, dark veins. They vary in every slab and produce a unique result every time. This colour palette also meets the high demand for colours and patterns that exude mental peace and calm in an interior, while at the same time radiating strength and character.


Lasa comes in several versions. For instance, Lasa Dune, Lasa Waves, Lasa Creamly and Lasa Grey, depending on the design of the material.

A combination of elegant looks and sustainable properties

Lasa marble is a trending material due to its elegant looks and durable properties. Lasa is part of an important range of luxury brands, and meets the need for dreamy elegance that exudes mental peace and calm. This popularity can be attributed to the elegant appearance of the sugary white and the floating patterns of mountains and waves that seem to fan out endlessly. Brachot has noticed the increasing demand for exclusive products. With its fascinating textures, unique colour palette and story, Lasa fits perfectly into this category. The subtle interaction of colours creates a feeling of connection and comfort. The wavy veins make the whole thing sensual and dreamy at the same time.

Lasa marble is a beautiful natural stone that has been formed over millions of years by the forces of nature. This stone is not only sustainable, but also readily available because it is extracted directly from the earth. It also lasts for generations without losing its quality. Natural stone is free of harmful substances and can be completely recycled, which makes it ideal for a circular economy that focuses on sustainability.

In other words, you do not use energy or emit CO2 when developing or producing natural stone. This means natural stone is the most sustainable building material, and respects the cradle-to-cradle principle like no other. Furthermore, natural stone is also economical in terms of production, installation and daily use.

Technical aspects


Lasa is a natural stone. This Italian white marble is an ancient metamorphic calcareous rock, with calcite as its main mineral. Lasa marble is a non-foliated rock that no longer exhibits fossils. This white fine-grained marble has brown, dark veins scattered across its surface. These veins make every slab unique.


Lasa is a white marble (natural stone) that is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. It is a very strong material. However, as the main mineral is calcite, this marble is less scratch resistant and less acid resistant. It has a sugary appearance. The original minerals are compressed, which greatly reduces porosity (0.3%). This, combined with low water absorption (0.1%), makes Lasa extremely suitable for indoor applications such as shower cladding and floors in areas with low requirements in terms of wear resistance. Lasa marble can also be used as façade cladding.
