Get to Know: The Mauresque Collection of Cement Tiles


We spend a lot of time talking about pattern around these parts. It’s hard not to when Granada Tile‘s Echo Collection offers dozens upon dozens of cement tile choices perfect for kitchen tiles, bathrooms tiles, wall tiles—pretty much any surface you can imagine. You can personalize your colors and truly make these exceptional concrete tiles your own in your next tile installation. What we don’t talk a lot about it shape, so today that’s what we’ve got planned for you. We’re going to introduce you to the shapely (and colorful) concrete tiles of our Mauresque Collection. Now these roughly six-by-six inch cement tiles boast all the environmentally friendly bona fides of our Echo Collection (they’re air-dried rather than kiln fired for starters) and have the same strength and durability as our other cement tile designs too.

The collection takes its inspiration from two sources. We looked to Moroccan tile for the tile designs’ rich hues. French tiles suggested the warm patina and feel for the cement tiles. One pattern takes its name—Escama—from the Spanish word for scales and features a design of overlapping semi-circles. It’s available in four colors. The second pattern in the collection, Arabesque, is our take on a classic design of the Middle East and comes in three shades.

As with our other tile collections, these cement tiles offer all sorts of options for tile installations. In the cream, yellow and green tones, they’d be a perfect choice for tile backsplashes or bathroom wall tiles or kitchen wall tiles. In the rich brown hue we’ve dubbed oak, they would look smashing as floor tiles both inside and out.

If we’ve piqued your curiosity, we carry two of the tile designs from the collection in-stock (Arabesque in linen and Escama in straw). For others, it takes eight to 12 weeks for an order.

So if you’re looking for something shapely, be sure to give us a shout!
