HABITUS SUPER TUSCAN CORK TILE is produced from shards of virgin cork recovered from the waste of the industrial wine stopper production in Spain and Portugal. These shards are normally destined for granulation and production of agglomerated products where binders are added. Instead and In keeping with the tradition of selecting corks for purity which are used in the best wines, we propose the material in its unadulterated state for use as a unique decorative mosaic.
Supplied on sheets, this material is installed to wall and floor surfaces using a contact adhesive or thin-set mortar, stained and sealed and finished with a grout product. The material is lightweight and easy to shape using a utility knife. We produce custom color finishes including color mixes, tell us your ideas!
With no rhyme or reason and with none alike, each 2″ high shard tells its own tale. And instead to simply call it wine cork, the inventor decided to name it in honor of his favorite wine known for its rebellious origins; Super Tuscan.
Exclusively for Habitus; Super Tuscan Cork Tile!
