product description + credits

* this product comes in 20 pieces per bundle

belgian reproduction is our latest tile infatuation which comes in the form of classically reproduced belgian terracotta tiles - available in squares, planks, hexagons, circles & star/cross.

clé has lovingly restored a modest form of terracotta production, only this time, substituting the standard terracotta with the most exquisite flemish black. these wood-fired tiles are a concert of variations, both surface and shade. our star/cross tiles are a historic shape combination that transforms into an unparalleled surface, due to the exquisite nuances only found in our belgian reproduction terracotta.

IMPORTANT: we prize our belgian reproduction tiles for their variation, which results from the hand mixed nature of their clay body, and is further enhanced during the firing process. noticeable variations in thickness, size, shade and color are to be expected.

all tile should be blended before installation, and a grout joint size of at least ½” must be used. should you find extreme variations in length between the pieces of your order, particularly with bundles, we recommend increasing the grout joint size up to ¾” or even 1” to compensate and create a cohesive look.

the installation and maintenance process for belgian reproduction is very specific - to ensure you understand what is required, please make sure you review our installation & maintenance guides before purchasing.

about this collection

We’ve long admired the grand courtyards of northern europe and the gray patinas and refined rusticity of belgian design. We have found a tile that echoes these elements, and have taken a restored form of terracotta to create belgian reproduction tiles that will ground projects both indoors and outdoors with an austerity as striking as an antique belgian surface.

faq

what grout joint size, type, and color do you recommend?

clé recommends the use of mapei flexcolor cq grout and a 1/2" grout joint with this collection. should you find extreme variations in length between the pieces of your order, we recommend increasing the grout joint size up to ¾” or even 1” to compensate and create a cohesive look.

if you are trying to achieve a "dark look" we recommend using custom building products polyblend #60 charcoal sanded grout to intentionally stain the tile and help gain a dark consistency.

grout color selection is always up to our client and/or their design professional. however, clé is often asked for our opinion on best grout selections for our tiles. and due to the large array of grout colors that are now available, clé would like to offer this general guideline on a foolproof grout color selection for any of your clé tiles

  • first, have your professional tile contractor complete your tile installation, except for the grout portion.
  • next, when ready to grout, ask your contractor to bring ALL grout color charts from his preferred grout manufacturers, for your review.
  • lastly, choose a time of day when you are most pleased with the lighting in your space (either natural lighting, installed lighting or a blend of both). during that lighting and time of day, select the grout color that best matches your tile selection.

note that the full Mapei Flexcolor CQ color catalogue contains 40 colors to choose from. visit the mapei website to view.

how much variation should I expect?

we prize our belgian reproduction tiles for their variation, which results from the hand mixed nature of their clay body, and is further enhanced during the firing process. noticeable variations in thickness, size, shade and color are to be expected. 

belgian reproduction tiles are rated V5 for color variation, T3 for texture variation as outlined in our tile variation reference guide.

why do you suggest i order at least 15% more than my measurements?

Industry standard suggests adding at least 15% overage due to tile cuts, potential breakage, or future repairs.
