Based on a set of designs recovered from antiquated houses and crumbling regal buildings in Havana and Camaguey, the Cuban Heritage Collection introduces several historical designs of cement tile, also known as concrete tile or patterned tile, each one available in three colorways: one with the original color combination found in Cuba, and two others with more modern and subtle colors.
Most patterns have a main field tile and optional matching borders. These matching borders can be used to frame a floor tile "rug" or to assist in incorporating your own unique design. Add solid color field tiles to complete your floor.
All field pieces, borders and corners are 8" x 8" (20cm x 20cm) and handmade by expert craftsmen. Custom colors, sizes and unpolished finish are available along with matching stair treads and bullnose. Custom order prices vary and shipping is usually 8-10 weeks. Color chips (1" x 1" squares of cement tiles) of the available color palette can be ordered to help you envision your design. Contact us to get started.
Ordering Instructions for Cuban Heritage: select quantity of patterned field tile and add to cart, return to item to add borders and corners if needed for design, and confirm quantities in cart before checking out.
Slight variations such as size, shade, slight imperfections, irregular edges and the appearance of fine cracks are inherent to this product. This adds to the natural appeal and does not compromise the performance. Because each cement tile is handmade and comes with its own unique characteristics, we recommend ordering color chips first.
