In essence, you’re get the best of both worlds wrapped into one amazing product!
Textiles as Inspiration
While standard tile can be stunning, sometimes we strive to achieve a different, more intricate look to our space. In these instances, a fabric-look tile may be just what you are looking for. The fabric-look is unique yet also provides an element of sophistication and style.
Designs from the fabric-look are inspired by a variety of different textile materials such as cotton, linen, wool or silk. Some are even influenced by richer textures such as tweed. These materials add multiple layers to your space to create dimension in the room.
