Also known as "Cuban tile" or "mosaico hidraulico", these bright, long lasting tiles are made by layering mixtures of Portland cement, marble powder and natural pigments into a mold.
The tiles became popular in the 19th century, particularly in warmer climes (such as Cuba) for their cool, fresh feel in hot weather.
Encaustic tiles can be found all over the world--from Barcelona's promenades and Moroccan homes, to Parisian galleries and classic New York buildings.
Encaustic tile is completely natural in both content and process, which makes it a perfect fit for LEED projects.
ABOUT OUR TILES:
Hand crafted with 100% natural materials, our encaustic (cement) tiles are suitable on the floor, on the wall, indoors and out.
Made to last a lifetime, they are ideal for both residential and commercial projects. Tiles are completely recyclable, and are water-cured as opposed to fired.
Tiles are handmade to order, which means color can be customized to suit your space.
