Simple encaustic designs join Indigenous’ intricate patterns

Twelve new tile designs have joined Indigenous’ Encaustics Range. Suitable for walls and floors, the designs span from a classical black and white Chess Board tile, to 1960’s inspired patterns and simple, geometric effects. The tiles can be used to create a continuous pattern, patchwork effect or feature, with four plain tiles also included in ivory, charcoal, black and concrete-effect.

All of the encaustic designs, which now total 33, are made by hand using traditional frames and moulds. A mix including natural marble powder, cement and coloured pigments creates the surface pattern, above a sand and cement backing. Each tile measures 200x200mm and a sealant prefinish creates an easy care surface.

“Encaustic tiles continue to be really popular, bringing some much needed colour and pattern to our homes. The popular Victorian, Moroccan and Cuban designs are now being joined by more simple patterns, so there are endless options to suit all interior styles. Look out for modern retro patterns, curlicues and loops, in single shades and single angular lines used to create diamond shapes,” explained Indigenous’ Founder and Designer, Joss Thomas.

To view the collection, please check out our exclusive encaustic patterned tiles range.
