Bee & Skep
Since antiquity, the honeybee has held an important role in both the practical and mystical aspects of human life. Worshiped as a harbinger of birth, death, and resurrection by the ancient Egyptians, they were revered for their honey and nurtured in woven baskets known as “skeps.” To the Celts, the bee was an honored messenger between worlds, facilitating communication with gods in the spirit realm. Across cultures and eras, bee’s honey has sweetened and healed, their wax has soothed and brought light, and their steadfast pollinating has kept nature abundant. Our Bee & Skep tile is an ode to this magical creature.

Classic Pattern for Any Space
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. Cement tiles are completely natural in both content and process, and became popular in the 19th century for their cool, fresh feel in hot weather. These beauties can be found all over the world–from Barcelona’s promenades and Moroccan homes, to Parisian galleries and classic New York buildings.
Hand crafted with 100% natural materials, cement is suitable on the floor, on the wall, indoors and out. Made to last a lifetime, they are ideal for both residential and commercial applications. Cement tiles are completely recyclable, and are water-cured as opposed to fired. Each piece is handmade to order, which means color can be customized to suit your space.
