History of encaustic tiles
The experiments of producing encaustic tiles began around 1828 and the first encaustic pavement was built for Queen Victoria’s Osborne House on the Isle of Wight in 1844. This Victorian encaustic effect became popular and the greatest impetus was given by the Gothic Revivalist architect AWN Pugin, who recommended the tiles for religious and secular buildings. Encaustic tiles are perfect for creating beautiful accents in any space.
Why opt for encaustic tiles?
Our encaustic tiles are made by expert artisans using high quality material. Having intricate patterns and colours, each encaustic tile is handmade and dried in a different way with variations in depth or edges of the patterns. The inconsistency adds to the overall beauty of these Moroccan tiles when laid. These tiles are generally frost proof and can be used for outdoor applications.
