WHAT ARE ENCAUSTIC TILES, MOROCCAN TILES?
We are proud to say that our handmade Encaustic Tiles are everything - but perfect! They are a lovely, handmade product, made by artisans in the same way like in 1900. They are the opposite of any perfect and steril factory made tile which can be found in the usual tile chains or DIY stores. Encaustic Tiles are right for you if you are looking for a product with athmosphere, character, vintage feel and with loads of imperfections like slight colour differences, no straight lines, a few soft scratches and marks and with the knowledge that each tile is unique. We try to produce our handmade Encaustic Tiles not like perfect prints and even give them a bit wear and tear to make them not look too new. Please note that Encaustic Tiles become over the years more aged and more rustic which adds to the character of the tiles, especially if installed on a floor. We know that white Encaustic Tiles are very popular, please be aware that it is most likely that the colour gets a bit darker with the time. This depends much on how you handle them e.g. walking on them with shoes off is the best way to preserve the shine. However, walking on them with muddy boots, spilling red wine and curry sauce makes them most likely a bit darker. With a good sealing you can take off red wine, bbq sauce, olive oil etc in most cases but as mentioned before, the colour may gets a bit darker and a more "used, aged look" will appear, which is completely normal for these kind of handmade product. A good sealing protects a lot but not of everything and all. It's best to follow our installation guidance and maintenance advice so that you have many years of a beautiful design product at home.
