Description

The healthy and environment-friendly building material clay, in common use for thousands of years, has been enjoying increasing popularity, including in industrialised nations. In hot dry and temperate climate zones, clay offers numerous advantages over other materials. Its particular texture and composition also holds great aesthetic appeal.
