Retro Mix tiles are an encaustic style of high-quality patterned porcelain tile from Spain. Designed with the current patterned tile trend at its heart. Encaustic tiles have been in use since at least the 14th century, and some of the designs are used still. Although the processes of how they were hand-produced then and even today’s handmade styles are vastly different. At their heart, the finished tile is the same, originally a palette of coloured shapes or swirls formed a design on the surface a clay base, inlaid into the surface then glazed. The more modern process is still very much a handmade product, cement or hydraulic tiles are made using a metal frame that separates the coloured pigments mixed with cement and marble powder, and then fixed into position using a hydraulic press, making sure the pigments are fully embedded.

Retro pays its respects to those original designs, however, porcelain tiles can be more durable, printed digitally, and much more consistent.

Handmade? no, they aren’t.

Affordable, stunning, and absolutely at the forefront of today’s trend, they most certainly are.

Retro Mix is sold and laid only as a random mix Рsupplied in cartons of 20 tiles. Certain designs are available as single decor options to special order only. Please ask for details.
