Collection: Encaustic & Terrazzo tiles

Encaustic tiles were first manufactured in Europe in the 19th century, they decorate the floors of palaces in St. Petersburg, Gaudi’s distinctive houses in Barcelona, and grand hallways all the way from Paris to Saigon. Their original, unique style and hand-made nature have lead them to be exceptionally desirable for over 300 years.

It’s said that ‘terrazzo’ was created by builders in Venice as a low-cost flooring material to surface the outdoors areas around their living quarters. Originally it consisted of chips of scrap marble set in clay and then sealed with goat’s milk! Nowadays, of course, it is produced by industrial grinders and set with man-made resins.
