Encaustic Tiles

Encaustic Tiles

This post is now over a year old, so certain aspects of this post may no longer be correct or relevant.

Encaustic tiles are made up of two or more colours of clay which are inlaid together to create the pattern, rather than being painted on the top with a glaze. So the pattern itself is actually produced using the different pigments of clay, meaning the pattern stays even as the tile wears down. Encaustic tiles have been around since medieval times and are often seen in Victorian homes.

This type of tile always has vibrant, interesting patterns and are great to bring drama, warmth and texture to your interiors. Have a read of Honestly for a blogger who is passionate about this type of tile.

Take a look at a selection our ranges inspired by the vibrant patterns of this historic tile.
