Originating in the Iberian Peninsula more than ten centuries ago and becoming fashionable in the 19th Century, cement tiles have graced the floors of grand villas and hotels across the globe.
Cement tile making is a craft that has been passed on from generation to generation. The techniques of today are the same used by the ancient artisans of the Iberian and Yucatan Peninsulas. Subtle variations in the pigments and the rate at which each tile batch dries, affects the colors enhancing the hand made characteristics. Cement tiles are considered a "Green" product, since they are never fired, only pressed and air dried.
Made from cement, sand, marble dust and mineral pigments, these tiles are defined by the brilliant colors, amazing patterns andsignature matte surface that they are sought-after for, today. Because each cement tile is made by hand, the possibilities to customize them is endless. Come visit us at Statements to experience the ancient world of cement tiles.
