Handmade Cement Tiles Use Centuries-Old Process

Granada Tile’s Echo Collection uses a technique developed in France in the late 1870s. The key elements are the plate, the crown, the lid, the design mold, the ladle, and the press. In addition to a vast collection of historic bronze design molds, Granada Tile also make new molds constantly so clients can match their tile to their style.

Each area of each tile is hand-poured and pressed to 3,000 PSI. This fuses the layers and makes the tile very strong.  The finished tile is 5/8″ of an inch thick and the color layer is 1/8″.
