Encaustic Cement Tiles --Mosaicos Hidraulicos
For the longest time I admired the fabulous floors of Europe and Latin America. It was not until I began to explore flooring options for the hurricane proof house under construction at http://www.concretecottage.com that I realized the need for a line of cement tiles for the USA.
You know, I really wasnt sure what to even call these tiles when I began looking for them. The information in English is really sketchy. WhenI finally rounded up all that I could find, I put it on a web page here.
The designs tha tI saw were wonderful but not necessarily what would appeal to the coastal residents of the USA, so I set about to design my own. The result is Villa Lagoon Tile, cement tile with sea shore themes and more pastel colors than traditional tiles.
