We are now introducing Ca’ Pietra’s new hand made en-caustic cement floor tiles. The pattern continues throughout the depth of the tile and as a result wears much better.
We have the newest products from the Porcelanosa design collection, these stunning ceramic wall tiles also come with a matching, porcelain floor counterpart. Visit our store for a better look and more information.
We are rejuvenating our ceramic wall tile displays with these fantastic rustic glazed and crackle glazed brick tiles. If you are interested in any of these tiles, call us, email us or visit us in store in Reigate, Surrey.
En caustic tiles, in which the pattern on the surface is created by using different colours of clay, first appeared in Europe in the late 19th century.
This is Ca’ Pietra’s first ever collection of hand-made decorative tiles made using the ‘encaustic’ technique with cement in which the pattern is inlaid into the body of the tile, so that the design and colour remain over a longer period of time even with extensive wear.
These are different from ceramic tiles in the way that they are created. Ceramic tiles are made such that surface pattern is the product of the finishing glaze printed on the surface and not the actual tile itself. Whereas with these, the pattern continues throughout the depth of the tile and as a result wears much better. Contact us today for more information.
