Calacatta Tiles

Calacatta is a traditional Italian marble that is actually found in Carrara Italy.  Compared to Carrara marble, Calacatta is whiter marble with bolder more dramatic veining.

Our range of Calacatta porcelain captures the beauty and essence of luxurious natural marble – available in the 600x600mm in both a matt and polished finish. The tiles are suitable for both bathrooms walls and floor and residential floor applications.

Subway Tiles

It's been over a century since “Subway” tiles were first introduced but their popularity has proven to be timeless.

“Subway tile” is named for its use in subway terminals in New York City. Although it's traditionally a glazed, white, rectangular tile, twice as wide as it is high there is a range of options when it comes to designing your subway tile splash back.
