Ceramic Tiles of Italy: Eco-Friendly Italian Tiles
Our founder, Yaakov did a fantastic interview with Ceramic Tiles of Italy. They were down at the Dwell On Design 2009 conference representing more than 200 tile manufacturers from Italy. Ceramic Tiles of Italy promotes Italian tile, and informs consumers of the benefits of genuine Italian tile. From our conversation with them, we found out that some of the best tile manufacturing in the industry, including that of clay and porcelain tile, comes from Italy.
Porcelain tiles have become a major innovation over the last 15 years. They are known for their durable construction and their weather-proofing. Some porcelain tiles are made up of up to 58% recycled content, and they can be recycled again and again. They emit no VOC's and do not off-gas. Ceramic Tiles of Italy was nice enough to show us a variety of different types and styles of tile. They even have tiles with a metallic finishing, and tiles that are less than 3 mm thick.
