why we love cement tile

we’re entranced by the almost endless possibilities of clé’s handcrafted cement tile, with its silky matte finish, deliciously variegated colors, and possibilities for patterns both exuberant and subtle. cement tile offers the most vibrant colors possible in tilemaking, with remarkable value for the quality and variety they offer. it’s no surprise that cement tiles have become one of the most sought-after tiles for use on walls, floors and patios, indoors or out (weather permitting), with myriad shapes, sizes, colors and patterns that are impossible to refuse.

the finest cement tiles in the world

clé has long been a champion of this timeless building material. tiles made of cement have graced the halls and walls of homes, cafes and hotels across many continents for hundreds of years, but were relatively unknown when we first introduced them to america. since then, we have elevated and popularized cement tile–also known as encaustic cement tiles, concrete tiles, hydraulicos, cuban tiles and more–by developing a top-of-the line cement tile of unparalleled quality, durability, and versatility. treat this tile with the respect it’s due: make sure to have it installed professionally by an installer who has experience with cement tile.
