TorZo Durum is Made of 70% Rapidly Renewable & Recycled Wheat Straw
TorZo Durum Vanity Countertop, Copper
TorZo Durum Edge Detail, Natural
Durum creates a warm, organic and natural look that can be used in a variety of projects. Manufactured in the Pacific Northwest, Durum represents the commitment by TorZo to provide the building industry with sustainable surface products that are stylish, durable, and environmentally friendly.
Durum is made from composite wheat straw material and is the perfect fit in any green building project. When used in green building projects, Durum can contribute to the project’s LEED certification. This is a result of the high percentage of recycled agricultural by-products in Durum, as well as its formaldehyde-free composition.
At the heart of Durum is an acrylic resin that is added to the boards through a state of the art infusion process. This adds to Durum’s durability and hardness, making it ideal for high wear applications.
Great for both horizontal and vertical applications.

CaraGreen is heading to Baltimore October 28th and 29th where we’ll be exhibiting at NeoCon East. NeoCon East is the premier design exposition and conference for the mid-atlantic design community and we are excited to be part of this show!
The CaraGreen booth has installations of Durat, Meld, TorZo, and Turning House Millworks, so designers can see these sustainable products in action. Durat will have a vibrant and playful lime green tub and kelly green sink on display. Meld will have two stunning ecoX countertops, one of which shows their new micro glass option, which uses finely ground glass as the aggregate. TorZo Indure, Tiikeri, and Orient will be featured as wall coverings and shelving in the booth, which adds texture and warmth to the space. And, Turning House Millworks will cover the floor with their reclaimed multi-plank (engineered) wood flooring.
If you are heading to the show, we hope to see you there! Otherwise, look for a recap of the event on our blog next month.

CaraGreen now represents TorZo Sustainable Surfaces in DC and Maryland. The additional territory comes as a result of CaraGreen’s success with the product in NC, SC, GA, TN, VA, and FL. CaraGreen has secured specifications in projects ranging from corporate offices to restaurants. Sales Manager, Lisa Feldman commented “We are more enthusiastic than ever about TorZo’s products. They have a stellar sustainability profile, interesting aesthetic, and the company continually innovates.” TorZo sheet goods are manufactured from agricultural by-products, such as sorghum straw and wheat, as well as recycled wood. Their proprietary acrylic infusion process transforms these sheets into hard and very durable surface material suitable for horizontal or vertical applications in both commercial and residential environments. TorZo will take part in the Design Expo at the AIA National Convention in Washington DC next month. Stop by their booth, #1808, and see their materials firsthand. Or, for more more information on TorZo, contact us.
