Video introduction to cement tile
Cement tiles are not for everyone. Cement tiles show variation in the same batch. Cement tiles will not be identical from piece to piece. This is a result of the handmade process and the nature of cement. Mixing tiles from different boxes is recommended to achieve a naturally rich appearance.
Villa Lagoon Tile is is a non-fired green product, created using basic earth components and natural pigments. This type of tile is called Encaustic Cement Tile or Cuban Tile in the States and Mosaicos Hidraulicos in other parts of the world. The artisan manufacturing process has not changed since the 1850's.
