IMPORTANT: each batch of tile contains variations due the hand mixed clay body, which is further enhanced during the firing process. to create a more consistent dark look with these tiles it is necessary to use a charcoal or black grout. we highly recommend Custom Building Products Polyblend #60 Charcoal Sanded Grout (not available through clé) as this grout stains the tile and helps gain a dark consistency. if you would like an even deeper, darker look, we suggest another application of grout.

since the installation process is very specific for this tile, please make sure you read this information and the installation guide before making a purchase.

* this product comes in pieces per box and makes up pieces per square foot

substitute the standard terracotta with the most exquisite gray clay. we call these tiles flemish black belgian terracotta because they are perfect for grounding projects with the same austerity as striking belgian antique surfaces.

the word losange is the french word for "diamond". these gracefully formed diamond-shaped tiles can be used to create a distinctive pattern, on their own. and when paired with circle tiles, a more classic, palatial surface emerges.

(available in 8" squares, hexagons, star/cross, circle/losange, as well as, 2"x8" planks).

please note the color of this tile is gray with variations due to the hand-mixed clay body. expect an array of tones from a dark gray to heather hues. all tile should be blended before installation.

IMPORTANT: installed with an unglazed grout, the tile keeps its gray hues. to create a more consistent dark charcoal look it is necessary to use a black grout. we highly recommend Custom Building Products Polyblend #60 Charcoal Sanded Grout (not available through clé) as this grout helps the gray terracotta gain a dark consistency.

about this collection

we’ve long admired the grand courtyards of northern europe, the gray patinas and refined rusticity of belgian design. we have been on a quest to find a tile that would echo these elements and would look equally good both indoors and out. we discovered this exquisite blackened clay, and took a restored form of terracotta to create these belgian reproduction tiles perfect for grounding projects with an austerity as striking as an antique belgian surface.
