Habitus has created something new; Super Tuscan Cork Tile. It is a mosaic produced using remnants of the cork industry in Spain and Portugal. Irregular shards of virgin cork are shaped by hand and supplied on sheets for installation like ceramic tiles using adhesive and grout. Super Tuscan Cork Tile is suitable as a feature wall or accent floor application for both commercial and residential spaces. It can even be used in wet areas such as showers. Produced in 2 inch high cork pieces and supplied on interlocking sheets measuring 12 inch x 12 inch. It is easy to install using thinset adhesive and tile grout. It is 100% natural, it insulates, it dampens sound, its anti-bacterial and most of all it is very unique and decorative. Its a conversation piece for any feature area. We supply it in the natural color of cork and we provide custom stained colors and color mixes. This mid-century modern style innovation furthers the commitment made by our company in finding new ways to create sustainable and unique finish materials……especially using our favorite material, cork!
Super Tuscan Cork Tile is available exclusively at Habitus!
Shirasu Kabe is a unique plaster wall finish produced from volcanic soil in Japan. It is applied by hand in textures using trowels. The volcanic soil it is made of is proven to remove impurities and odors in the atmosphere where it is applied. It also controls humidity; extracting humidity when levels are high and releasing the same when areas are dry. Habitus supplies the material in pre-mixed bags with the tools, detailed application instructions and technical support.
