New Products: A naturally superior bath: It may sound obvious, but not all baths are created equally. At Victoria + Albert we are passionate about our unique ENGLISHCAST® material.
ENGLISHCAST® is made from finely ground volcanic limestone mixed with resin. As the stone-rich alternative to both cast iron and acrylic it is 100% one piece, hand finished and packed with naturally desirable properties:

Green Statement/Products: Processing ENGLISHCAST® requires a fraction of the energy used in the furnace production of molten metal and enamel, so a Victoria + Albert bathtub requires less energy to manufacture than cast-iron.
ENGLISHCAST® also uses significantly less energy than the high-heat ovens that are essential to form the plastic sheets used on acrylic tubs.
In addition, all Victoria + Albert bathtubs are hand-finished by craftsmen, reducing reliance on non-renewable resources.
