Squak Mountain Stone is a paper and cement-based composite made from at least 49% post-industrial recycled content and 2.5% post-consumer recycled content.
A graduate school essay that proposed taking mixed waste paper from a local non-profit center and turning it into a beautiful product has resonated with people around the world.
But it's not the story that makes Squak Mountain Stone such a unique material: it's the stone itself. It's rustic. It's varied. It doesn't follow any of the "rules" established by modern countertop companies: you don't "fix" it, you don't dress it up, it won't look seamless and it most certainly will not look like it came from a cookie-cutter factory. Squak is the "rebel" of the countertop world.
The appeal is in the hand-made nature, its pastoral, honest aesthetic and the sculptural variability that makes each slab dinstinct.
