Finally, the Cuban floor tiles that I chose were installed. They are from the Cuban Heritage Collection at Villa Lagoon Tile. They are encaustic cement tiles. Tiles like these are prevalent in other places like Spain and Morocco. The technique came to Havana Cuba in the late 1800s and local designers quickly developed patterns that were unique to Cuba. This book Havana Tile Designs is a good source of patterns.
