Brushed Tusk is the first in a series of product designs inspired by the culture and landscapes of India. The materials come from the rural regions of India where the palm grows natively, and it’s very much a part of daily life there. The dimensions of this initial offering of Brushed Tusk flooring are 1/2” x 3-1/4” x random lengths up to five feet.
