Milano Tile Collection - Thin Terrazzo Tile - Kitchen Floor Tile - Bathroom Floor Tile


 

Terrazzo was originally invented in the 15th century by Venetian construction workers using marble chips left over from upscale jobs. The workers would usually set them in clay to surface the patios around their living quarters. Consisting originally of marble chips, clay, and goat milk (as the sealer), terrazzo tile production became much easier after the 1920s and the introduction of electric industrial grinders and other power equipment.

 

Although they are of Italian origin, thin terrazzo concrete tiles are often confused with French tiles. Because of their natural simplicity and elegance, Milano floor tiles blend well with a number of different styles and aesthetics, including Contemporary, Traditional, Asian, Classical, Country, Tropical, Rustic, Tuscan, and Scandinavian.
