Have you ever wondered how all these unique rock bathtubs and marble bathtubs are made? In this article we will try to give you a little insight into the process of creating a natural stone sink or a boulder bathtub from start to finish.
The natural stone sinks that we produce are made in Indonesia, in Java Island. We begin with a trip to the beautiful river where basalt boulders can be procured. These boulders are formed over thousands of years, thanks to the river flow. Many of them are underwater, piled on top of one another, so it is quite hard to predict an exact shape and colour of each boulder. However, we think that is what makes our River Stone Basins and Boulder Tubs so unique. We just use what nature gives us.

After we find the right boulder, it is time to bring it to the factory, and prepare the further process.
First, each rock is cut in half and checked in terms of quality for the first time (our Quality Control process has multiple stages!). If something is wrong, the boulder is used for different purpose. Usually everything is alright and we carry on with carving and achieving appropriate shape. In case of boulder bathtubs we of course require a little assistance of the machinery. Nevertheless, wherever we can, we prefer to use human hand for maximum precision, especially when giving final touches to our freestanding stone bathtubs.
Such a River Rock Bathtub is probably one of the toughest bathtub on the planet thanks to the pressure it withstand over millions of years. It is extremely difficult to break or damage, therefore, it results in a bathroom accessory that is timeless. Interior designers and architects all over the world appreciate the rock tubs for their amazing qualities and natural look.
