Egyptian Tile Photos - Photos of Tiles in Egypt


 

Egypt's history stretches back milennia, so there's plenty of inspiring design to look at no matter where you turn. Starting in the 20th century, cement tiles became a popular choice in Egyptian design because of their beauty and durability. Wander around structures built in the last century or so to see a tapestry of cement tiles.

 

See more than pyramids on a visit to Egypt and take photos of the cement tiles you see so you can share them with us.

Special Thanks: The photos in this section were all taken by our dear friend and historian Dr. Mahmood Ibrahim during his sabbatical in Cairo several years ago. [Look for his upcoming book on a fascinating medieval text he has been researching.]
