How they're made
The artisans that make these tiles mix red clay with water, then shape them by hand in wooden moulds and leave them to cure in the sun and wind for a few days. After that, they’re fired – each tile ends up a slightly different colour, from more pinky reds to brownish and yellow tones.
These tiles are all about the raw texture and soft, earthy colour of natural clay. They’ve got the well-worn look of an antique floor, with little imperfections that add to their charm.
Where we see itAs they’ve got a warm, homely look, these tiles are ideally suited to cosy spaces like kitchens. You can play up their rustic feel with wooden furniture, or make them more modern with contrasting colours. They're suitable for use with underfloor heating, too.
- Vacuum with a brush attachment or sweep regularly to remove loose grit and dirt.
- Clean with pH neutral cleaners only so you don’t erode the sealant.
Need to know
- Instructions for installation are provided on delivery.
- All our stone floors must be sealed after installation and before grouting.
- Apply a second coat of sealant after grouting.
- Natural stone tiles will require resealing. Depending on foot traffic, we recommend doing this around every three years or when water starts to seep into the stone rather than pool on top.
- We recommend using Lithofin Stainstop to seal and reseal your tiles.
- Stone and earthenware flooring can be fragile when cut or trimmed. We recommend allowing for 10% wastage when it comes to installing these tiles.
