Sahara’s earthy, ochre-toned timber with light grey wash, is inspired by the tall sand dunes and dry valleys of Africa’s Sahara Desert. With woodgrain reminiscent of the ripples the wind blows into the sand, Indus Sahara’s light-coloured timber promises to provide a touch wonder to your interior.

Available in 18mm T x 120mm W planks, Sahara offers effortless style to both residential and commercial interiors. Sahara is also available in 240mm wide planks.

The planks’ smooth surface with light brushing is pre-finished with a UV cured extra-matte lacquer, ensuring durability and protection whilst maintaining a charming look and feel.
