Copyright 2005-2014 Tesselle Cement Tiles. Tesselle designs encaustic cement tiles in modern interpretations. Our cement tiles are hand-made from a centuries-old technique that originated in Europe and made in countries such as France, Spain, Belgium, Moracco, Nicaragua, Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Mexico. Decorative cement tiles are enjoying a resurgence in both residential and commercial interior design and architectural projects. All designs are the original work of Tesselle Design. Encaustic cement tiles are also described as hydraulic tiles, concrete tiles or decorative tiles. Random tile patterns are also referred to as Loewy Tilings, Aperiodic Tilings and Truchet Tilings.
