All of the glass used to make Gilasi is domestically sourced within 250 miles from our manufacturing plant in Chicago. Much of the glass is post-consumer container glass and window glass which make up the base of Gilasi. Other glass is decorative post industrial scrap glass that comes from damaged hand-blown lighting fixtures.
Every part of the manufacturing and finishing process of Gilasi is done in Chicago, Illinois.
While we are always looking for ways to improve Gilasi, to create a slab of Gilasi takes about four weeks.
We do not recommend Gilasi for exterior applications.
While you can cut on Gilasi, we do not recommend it as it will quickly dull your knives.
Gilasi is highly stain resistant and does not require sealer. Darker colors like Pietra and Livadi do need a periodic application of Mineral oil to maintain their rich color due to the satin finish that Gilasi comes with. Lighter colors do not need this treatment.
Gilasi comes in three standard slab sizes which are: 28” x 109”, 46” x 109” and 62” x 109”. In addition to these sizes Gilasi can be made in custom slab sizes to further minimize waste and reduce cost from un-needed material.
No, Gilasi is an engineered stone and contains no cement so it does not need to be sealed.

Custom samples are ready in about one week and cost $80. There is no other charge associated with purchasing Gilasi other than the sample casting fee.

About 87% of Gilasi is recycled glass of varying sizes, a VOC free aeronautics grade epoxy is used to bind the material together and natural oxides are used to create base colors.
