These handmade Encaustic Tiles - Black & White Palais Khum, is a gorgeous classic Encaustic Tile design, that has been custom made specifically for A Little Morocco. This bold, black and white pattern creates a design statement that instantly transports you to the glamourous Palaces of the old medina of Marrakech. It has an old world essence and pairs beautifully with neutral black or white tiles.
Please note that 4 tiles are used to create a complete pattern or you can mix and match these single tiles to create a personal statement using other Encaustic Tiles to create your own bespoke design.
These Encaustic Tiles are suitable to be used on either flooring, walls or as an accent feature. Each tile has been hand poured into individual moulds, hydraulically pressed and then air dried, all using traditional techniques that have been applied for hundreds of years in Morocco.
True handmade Encaustic Tiles will show slight inflections, imperfections and colour bleeds which validate authenticity as there is no mistaking these precious beauties for factory made reproductions. These characteristics are considered part of the artisan individuality of each unique piece. The appearance of the tile surface may appear chalky and is highly porous, both of these factors change once the surface is sealed to suit (if required, refer to ALM's Encaustic Tile Guide ).
Tiles are sold individually, with the 16 tile configuration as shown, representing 1 box. Tiles are shown here unsealed, unaltered and in natural indirect light.
Installation by experienced Encaustic Tilers, is highly recommended.
