This series of solid-colored encaustic tiles was created so that there’s always something to perfectly coordinate with any patterned encaustic. Use encaustic white cement tiles alone to make a monochromatic statement or mix and match with other solids and patterns to design a unique room. Even the solid colors of these wall and floor tiles will have natural variation and interest because they are hand mixed before being poured.
Our Moroccan Cement Tile is a type of tile which is made from cement, these tiles are very durable and sturdy, being especially well-suited to high traffic areas, and they come in a range of patterns and colors.

Concrete tiles are often produced by local manufacturers and use recycled materials, such as crushed glass, recycled aggregates, and silica fume (a byproduct from other industrial processes). In addition, concrete tiles are so durable, they rarely require replacement. If you ever do decide to replace them, the concrete can be recycled.

No, cement tiles are not truly encaustic, but it is an acceptable label for cement tiles, also known as inlaid tiles. When cement tiles were first introduced during the mid-1800s, the Victorians thought they looked just like encaustic tiles which have been around for centuries, and mistakenly started referring to them as encaustic tiles also. Since then, the term has been widely used interchangeably to describe these two tile art forms.
It is also essential to order enough material, including overage, to help prevent the need to order more tile later. The exact same tile product, color, size, and dye-lots are not necessarily available to us from our manufacturers at a later date. Sometimes, after a period of time goes by, products can be discontinued by manufacturers. So, in the tile business, accurate ordering includes a certain percentage of overage, by necessity. Consult your licensed tile contractor about best practices regarding accurate tile measurement for your job, including an appropriate percentage of overage.
When I got to my local tile shop to pick out something in person, I couldn't resist one last look. In my research, I'd learned all about "patina" that develops over time. Patina doesn't sound so bad, even though I know perfectly well from my zinc countertop that patina is sometimes just a nice way of saying it shows every little mark and scuff for years and years until it's old and then and only then is it actually a desirable thing. I admired the cement tiles on display, and asked the consultant working with me about them. Even she didn't want to sell them to me, or to anyone, for that matter.
