A trip to Cuba inspired us to create the Cuban Heritage Collection. The collection introduces 14 historical designs, each one is available in 3 colorways: one with the original color combination found in Cuba, and two others with more modern and subtle colors.

These tiles recreate an atmosphere of days long ago:

  • speckled light filtering through curtains undulating in the breeze
  • patios and terraces bathed in the sun;
  • tile floors fresh under bare feet;
  • buildings with majestic marble columns and great halls adorned with showy tile designs;
  • ballrooms, once inhabited by a frenzy of laughter and rhythm, covered with smooth cement tiles where talc was thrown so that feet would glide as if almost floating.
  • The Cuban Heritage Collection revives these almost forgotten memories with a set of designs recovered from antiquated houses and crumbling regal buildings in Havana and Camagüey. In some cases, these structures were in such a state of disrepair that debris had to be removed in order to find the beautiful antique floor of intact tiles underneath. A shock in contrasts, but a fortunate discovery, since many of the old buildings are being destroyed or renovated and these tiles will soon be lost forever. Some of the tiles are whimsical and others are modernist, reflecting Cuba’s heyday in the designs. The Cuban Heritage Collection differs from other cement tiles by having more elaborate patterns, using stronger colors, and prominently using double borders to enrich the designs.

    The collection introduces fourteen historical designs, each one is available in three colorways: one with the original color combination found in Cuba, and two others with more modern and subtle colors.
