noun - ‘Collection of stones forming a road or walkway’.

The 'Calçada' is a cobblestone paving in natural stone. Originally used for roadways in larger stone sets, hundreds of kilometres have now been covered in tarmac. Fortunately calaçada remains a popular finish for sidewalks, plazas, city squares and private drives and garden paths. Though once an activity performed by thousands of craftsmen 'Calçateiros' this traditional paving is becoming less common.
Evo Fabric's 2014 'Calçada' collection encapsulates the feel and tradition of calçada mosaic and patterns as a historical heritage.
