YOSIMA coloured clay plaster offers remarkable quality, depth and brilliance. After more than five years of research, Claytec has brought together a selection of the finest earths for your enjoyment.
YOSIMA’s depth of colour does not come from artificial colours or pigments – it results exclusively from the material characteristics of the clay and earth of which it is made. So the clay is both the binding agent and the colour. Its subtle colour variations gives surfaces a natural and authentic character. The result is a series of coloured clay plaster for the design of interiors of the finest quality.
Claytec uses selected clays with an exceptionally pronounced depth of colour. The red coloration is a product of naturally occurring iron oxides in the earth, the yellow of iron hydroxides. Green clay result from very fine iron particles embedded in its mineral lattice, while brown clay is a product of the presence of manganese and black of charcoal. White clay colours are pure kaolin.
YOSIMA Clay Plaster is available in three classic colours:

Each of the base colours are also available in four lighter tones when mixed with white.
From the vast range of possibilities, Claytec has selected seven especially attractive colour palettes. Each palette is made from two base colours, available in four different blends. These blends are additionally available in three lighter tones. Together with the classic and base colours, this results in a finely graded spectrum of 140 possible colours.
The YOSIMA EDITION is a selection of the 12 best and most popular colours.

The Natural Benefits of Clay
Earth is one of the most aesthetically pleasing building materials that nature has to offer. The presence of the material can always be felt when clay is used in its pure form, or when applied as a smooth wall plaster. Making rooms with clay is more than just skin deep. They are not just natural and ecological; they are also elegant and appealing to the senses – each and every day.
Earth contributes to creating healthy and comfortable interiors because they are a product of the specific properties of the clay minerals it contains. Therefore finishing rooms with clay is healthy, relaxing and promotes a sense of well-being.
