Handmade encaustic tiles were once common throughout Europe, and particularly in southern France and Spain. Today these tiles are almost invariably factory-produced, whereas Dar Interiors' Moroccan encaustic tiles are still individually handmade using traditional techniques.

For patterned tiles, a copper 'stencil' is placed in the mould and the different natural coloured mixtures, composed of powdered marble, colouring oxides and white cement, are piped into each part of the design. The 'stencil' is then removed, and the sand-cement mixture that forms the base of the tile is added. Finally, the entire tile is compressed, removed from the mould and allowed to dry naturally.
Because the coloured surface is on average 3-4mm thick and is not a 'glaze', our Moroccan encaustic tiles are both 'non slip' and very hard-wearing, making them ideal for bathrooms, kitchens and patio floors and walls.

Our standard handmade encaustic tiles are 20cm square, and 20cm by 10cm for skirting tiles. They are available both in single colours and as polychrome patterned tiles. The colours, patterns and dimensions shown here are examples of tiles we currently hold in stock; we can have almost any colour, pattern and dimensions made to order.
