Travertine dates back in history as a type of stone used on diverse exterior application in Turkey, most notably in public buildings, mosques, museums and diverse landscaping. There is a know-how and tradition in this specific industry that Turkish should be proud of. In most recent times, this industry started to get more efficient and modernized, with the beginning of export.
Today, Turkish travertine is used on a wide range of exterior applications both in Turkey and abroad, ranging from diverse masonry, exterior flooring, landscaping, and much more.
The preferential type of Turkish travertine that is used many exterior projects requiring this type of stone is the Travertine Classic. Most people associate travertine with beige colour and because of higher demand for travertine for cladding from warmer countries, it makes sense that the preferred colour is beige: meaning the Travertine Classic.
In addition, there is some demand for Travertine Noce and Travertine Walnut.
Probably one of the most relevant markets for Turkish travertine exterior applications is Turkey itself.

In addition to Turkey, other main markets are the Middle East, former Ottoman empire countries such as Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and others.
And as expected, there is a real market for this type of product in travertine on the USA, with particular focus on the warmer areas.
