glamour, durability, and versatility

minimalist glamour, maximum presence

thassos is a brilliant ultra-white marble with a minerality that sparkles, reminiscent of newly fallen snow. despite its crystalline whiteness (which helps reflect light), it has a unique depth and mellow moodiness that keeps things interesting.

clé thassos is honed for a softer, more modern matte feel. it’s versatile as well–ideal for a classic space, or adding an elegantly crisp feel to a more contemporary one. adding to thassos’ versatility, our shapes and sizes–available individually and in sheets–range from penny rounds to planks to field tile. it’s the ideal tile to bring some classic stone goodness to design–but with a touch of liveliness and light.

why we love thassos

thassos has the durability, versatility, and luxurious feel of classic marble but without the veining found in carraras or calacattas. when a design calls for uninterrupted expanses of fresh, light, white, it has to be thassos.

the most reflective of all marbles, durable thassos can be used on floors and walls throughout most interiors, from bath to kitchen and beyond.

a stone for the ages

one of the first stones brought to the US, thassos takes its name from the greek island where it has been quarried (from open pits) for centuries, and where mining marble became an art form. used extensively throughout the roman empire, it was also used in parts of the storied hagia sophia in Istanbul. it’s a marble that’s helped make the world as we know it–and we predict: a future classic.

read before you buy this tile

do i need to seal thassos tiles?

like most natural stone, thassos requires sealing (before & after grouting) to prevent staining and help with repelling water.

if your tile is porous or if using a dark grout, clé recommends Stonetech Heavy Duty Sealer from laticrete as a pre-grout treatment.

for all other sealing and protecting, clé recommends Stonetech BulletProof Sealer from laticrete.

for more information about sealing please see our thassos installation & maintenance guide.

do you offer trim for your thassos tile? 

at clé we follow the international model of no trim and highly recommend our clients to do the same. below are the trim alternatives we recommend for this collection.

- if your project needs to turn a corner either inwardly or outwardly, mitering the tiles to meet seamlessly in a corner gives it the cleanest, crafted finish.
- a visible stone tile edge can be honed to make the side match the main surface of the tile.
- like with any of our tiles, you can also build out the sheetrock so that the surface of the finished sheetrock is flush with the surface of the tile.

for more detailed recommendations about trim, please see our trim guide.

how do i take care of my thassos tiles?

marble is chemically sensitive so only mild pH neutral cleaners should be used.

clé recommends laticrete cleaning products, please see our thassos installation & maintenance guide for more information.

what type of finish should i expect with this collection?

our thassos is an ultra-white crystalline marble with a smooth-matte, honed surface

what types and levels of variation and imperfections should i expect?

thassos is a natural stone and will exhibit variation in color and shade.

due to the natural materials and production process of thassos tiles, there will be degrees of variation in color, shade and size in your order, therefore it is important to blend the tiles from all boxes once they arrive and place them in their installation area to ensure you have the layout you want before installing.

variation and imperfection ratings:

thassos tiles are rated 'level 2 slight' for color variation, 'level 1 smooth' for texture variation, and 'level 1 slight' for size variation.

see illustrations in the technical specifications section above, and read more about the ratings in our tile variation & imperfections guide.

how will my thassos samples compare to my actual order?

as noted in the variation and add on orders sections of our faq, thassos is a natural stone which will exhibit degrees of variation in color and shade. Our tiles are cut from large blocks of thassos, therefore there will be variation in color and shade across production lots or batches depending on the area of the quarry a particular lot was pulled from. This means that your sample may not be a perfect match with your actual order, and that your add-on order may not be a perfect match to either.

what should i expect with my order of thassos tile?

 dust and shipping residue are to be expected and should be cleaned prior to installing.

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.

is it possible to purchase more of the same material after my initial order (i.e. place an add on order)?

thassos is a natural stone which will exhibit degrees of variation in color and shade. Our tiles are cut from large blocks of thassos, therefore there will be variation in color and shade across production lots or batches depending on the area of the quarry a particular lot was pulled from. This means that your sample may not be a perfect match with your actual order, and that your add-on order may not be a perfect match to either.

grout

clé recommends the use of mapei flexcolor cq grout with this collection. we recommend a 1/8" grout joint. thassos penny rounds, 2" hexagon mosaics and 1"x 3 3⁄4" herringbone mosaics come mounted on mesh sheets and will have a fixed 1/16" grout joint. 4" hexes come mounted on mesh sheets and will have a fixed 1/8" grout joint.

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.

for more information about grouting please see our thassos installation & maintenance guide.
