Cement tile, also known as encaustic or hydraulic tile, is made of cement, marble powder and natural pigments. The process requires no firing but rather uses a hydraulic press and mould that is then air dried. The crafting of these traditional tiles hasn't changed since the 1800's and is considered quite environmentally friendly as so much less energy is used compared to fired ceramics. Cement tiles are extremely durable, easy to clean, non-flammable, non-polluting, recyclable, naturally insulating and beautiful! I am pretty obsessed with them and would love to use them in a kitchen or bathroom or maybe both!
