Perdas was founded in 1995 in the borough of Paulilatino, with the initial objective of helping planners and administrators in the restoration of buildings and historical sites of Sardinia, using material naturally found on to the island.

The company expanded over the years until reaching a prestigious position in their use of Basalt, Granite and other natural stone found inland for paving, both interior and exterior ornamental cladding and the recovery and restoration of buildings, town squares and historical town centres.

It is the Company’s enthusiasm, competence and their strong ties with tradition, as well as their interest in research, that provide its benchmark for excellence and allow it to continually create new lines whereby the quality of the raw material and the artistic beauty of their work emerge and fuse with the historical and stylistic characteristics of Sardinia.

Natural Stone is, for the Company, a synonym of strength, elegance, longevity and vigour, characteristics that are transfused in even the simplest architectonic element, rendering each piece of work unique.

The quarry

The quarry is situated in central western Sardinia, on the slopes of Montiferru, found just 20km from their sawmill in Paulilatino, and is completely owned by the Company.

It is an open ‘pit slope’, allowing for the extraction of large masses of basalt.

It can be reached through a side road not far from the touristic spot of Saint Leonard and is scarcely visible: a fundamental aspect of its low impact on the environment.

The quarry guarantees a constant quality and quantity of material, allowed for by the large dimensions of its extraction basin.

The natural stone has a compact structure, with a uniform gray, almost blue colour.
