What is Distressing?

Normally sought for its calm, tranquil appearance which gives timber a rich vintage look. It is also a very subtle textural experience.
The process involves wire brushing the top surface of the timber after sanding. The stiff wire brushes would strip away and remove the soft wood fibers while the harder fibers would remain.
