Clay Plasters can play an important role in contributing towards a healthy interior environment and indoor air quality.

Not only because they are natural and toxin free, but also because they can help to control humidity, damp, temperature and, according to recent research, indoor pollutants.

The Guardian last year sent a warning to architects that sustainable building is no longer enough:

Buildings will also be expected to directly contribute to the health and wellbeing of the people who live, work and learn inside them. For buildings, healthy will become the new green.

We will explain exactly how clay plasters do this and the realities and advantages of using scientifically innovated, contemporary ready-mixed clay plasters.

And how, by re-branding clay plasters as a contemporary designer aesthetic we are starting to shift the perception of this ancient building material from ‘mud huts’ to recognition by publications such as Vogue and Elle Decoration as one of the hot new trends of 2017.
