ABOUT THE VENDOR
Sabine Hill brings modern and organic designs to the tradition of cement tiles, a technique that has been around since the late 19th Century. The company partners with a Caribbean-based factory that has been making tiles for over 60 years. Cement tile was first manufactured in the mid-nineteenth century to cover floors with novel designs, bold colors and to withstand footprints and the passage of time. Placed on the ground, walls or roofs; anything cement tiles cover becomes art. The tiles are an ingenious combination of cement, marble powder, water, sand, pigments, time and patience. Great durability, strength and versatility. A technique that uses a mold to make designs in many colors and a press to harden the tiles without requiring heat. The absence of kilns and high temperatures in the manufacturing process differentiates these tiles from other pavers. Cement tiles are therefore considered to be a ‘green’ or ecological product because the elements and process required for manufacturing them are natural.
