What are Cement Tiles?

These beautiful tiles are referred to by many names, including Encaustic Tile, Encaustic Cement Tile, Hydraulic Tile, Cuban Tile, Moroccan Tile, Spanish Tile, Portuguese Tile, and many more…we simply go by the traditional name of Cement Tile.

Cement Tiles do not use clay, are not glazed nor fired like ceramics. They are hydraulically pressed and cure naturally with time. Three layers form the tile, using a combination of cement, sand and marble dust and natural mineral pigments sourced from around the world. They are made the same way today as they were since the 1800’s by skilled artisans who have passed on their trade through generations. Each tile is made individually, where the utmost care and exceptional attention to detail is provided to every tile produced for Rever Tiles.

Distinct because of their use of inlaid pigment (rather than a painted surface), Cement Tiles have had a long and illustrious history since the mid-nineteenth century. With a long-lasting, durable surface, Cement Tiles are a wonderful way to impart both pattern and colour to any space.

The tradition of the tile is to create an interlocking design that comes to life across four tiles when each of the tiles are rotated 90 degrees. A reverse pattern is also created which is what makes these tiles so alluring.

The surface of the tile is muted, matte and silky by touch, Each one ever so slightly different to the next. The variegated colours only enhance the beauty of the tile, this along with a myriad of designs, make them one of today’s most sought-after tile.
