  • A pure expression of Mediterranean charm

    A pure expression of Mediterranean charm

    Imagine strolling on cobblestone streets under a starry sky; Tau Navy Blue 9x9 Matte Porcelain Tile will take you there. These vibrant navy tiles with a contrasting pattern of white stars recreate the look of encaustic tile, while providing the practical benefits of porcelain. Available in an adaptable square format, its matte finish and non-rectified edges lend this tile artisanal authenticity.

    All the benefits of porcelain

    Porcelain is more affordable, more durable, and easier to maintain than many other materials.

    Traditional look and eco-friendly benefits

    Natural variations in non-rectified tiles offer a handmade look, are made with less waste, and are more affordable.

  • Make a wish upon a star

    Inspired by the luminous night sky over the Mediterranean Sea, the Tau collection is an encaustic-look porcelain tile with a celestial pattern. Each of its four colorways creates a serene, nautical feel. The matte finish contributes to the natural look and feel of traditional encaustic tile, while its porcelain construction provides durability and keeps it affordable.

  • A centuries-old technique, reimagined

    A centuries-old technique, reimagined

    To make encaustic tile, pigment is added to wet clay, and the pattern contained in each tile is assembled piece-by-piece. By printing this look on durable, easy-to-maintain porcelain, the same vibrancy can be achieved without sacrificing porcelain’s advantages (it resists scratches, water, and fading). Plus, it’s more affordable, making this a budget-friendly way to enjoy an artisanal style.
