So, how can you imitate a tile paper? A technological innovation, stoneware mixes with fiberglass, making it possible to create the tiles as large as 120 x 40 inches or so, yet only a little over an inch thick. Wonderwall by Cotto d’Este is an example.
that is the idea behind the fabric collection by Marazzi Ceramiche. The basket series includes raised ceramic interlacing threads, inspired by natural fibers. The folds series offers microtexture geometries, and the artwork of tailors tiles imitate patchwork cloth.
Industry leaders are committed in ceramic tile manufacturing, celebrating the aesthetic purity of marble, producing high quality variants. Ceramica Sant’Agostino is one such company; Pure marble series has imitations of white Göflaner, Côte d’Azur and Palissandro sky marble, as well as white onyx.

The collection is available in a rich selection of colors and styles.
