FAQs Iznik Tiles

1.

​How are the Iznik tiles made?

Iznik/Persian Tiles are made on a very clean white base with hard backs with semi-precious stone of quartz and quartzite and underglazed decorations in a unique technique.

Our genuine Iznik tiles are composed 70-85% of quartz and quartzite. Its beauty arises from the harmonious composition of three successive quartz layers and a paste-slip-glaze combination which is extremely difficult to bring together. The mixture of quartz, clay and glaze disperses in a very wide thermic spectrum at 900 centigrade. The result is a tile made primarily out of a semi-precious stone: QUARTZ.

Even though it may appear to be against the principle of “ceramic textural unity”, the porous nature by design allows for dilatation or shrinkage in hot, cold or freezing conditions. This feature  “allows the tile breathe” making it suitable for all applications: hot or cold areas, indoor or outdoor, including pools or walls while maintain its color and quality compared to other ceramic or inkjet iznik or painted tiles on the market.
