Cement Tiles, beautiful age-old craftsmanship.

Cement tiles have been around since the middle age and were taken to Europe by the Moors, who vastly used them in buildings in Alhambra, Malaga, Grenada, Sevilla and Cordoba.


During the 1800's these tiles made a comeback and were first used in Catalonia, Spain, before spreading out to other parts of Europe (and eventually the rest of the world).


Now, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, the demand for authentic and sustainable products is increasing. And hence, also the demand for cement tiles, which are known in the Netherlands under the name "Portuguese tiles", cement tiles or mosaic tiles.


The renewed enthusiasm for this ‘green’ product may be interpreted as a reaction to the current technological era, in which industrially produced materials are often a strain on the environment.


During the production of cement tiles, no heating is involved. The materials used are environmentally friendly and sustainable, just like many centuries ago. That’s why more and more professional designers and consumers like to use cement tiles as a high quality and decorative element. They are reminiscent of times gone by, full of beauty and exclusivity.


For one of our full home renovation projects in Dubai we have designed and ordered customised cement tiles from #tsourlakistiles, in Crete, Greece.


In this particular project we chose the exact colors to better match each of the ambients they were intended to be used in.


We loved the product quality and looks. Each single tile is handmade and can be customised. This is definitely one of our favorite materials when it comes to interior or outdoor design.
