Cement tile is incredibly versatile, perfect for most applications. From walls to backsplashes to flooring, our cement tiles can be used to transform any space into a place of beauty. And if you’re looking to improve a bathroom or shower, cement tiles are one of the best options available for wet environments as their matte finish is naturally slip-resistant.
Our encaustic cement tiles come in a multitude of colors, shapes, and sizes. We hand pour and press all of our cement tiles, with a wide range of both patterned and solid designs available in a variety of forms, including hexagonal tiles, diamond tiles, subway tiles, and square tiles. From modern, dynamic, and bold to delicate patterns and simple solids, when it comes to cement tile designs, we have something for every designer, homeowner, and home improvement aficionado.
These handcrafted cement tiles are made with the finest materials, honed and perfected by artisans using a technique first developed by French and Catalan craftsmen in the 1850s. Each piece is hand-poured into a mold, combining mineral pigments and cement, and then hydraulically-pressed to form. This individualized process means no two cement tiles are exactly the same – it’s these subtle variations that set cement tile apart from mass-produced, highly uniform tiles. If your mission is creating an environment that highlights craftsmanship over cookie-cutter approaches, these tiles could be perfect for your next installation.
We invite you to browse our collection of 200+ colors and patterns to find that perfect cement tile for your bathroom, kitchen, shower, or backsplash.
Cement tile is one of the most versatile types of tile, perfect for most applications. From walls to backsplashes to flooring, our cement tiles can transform nearly any space.

Yes! Cement tile is great in wet applications when sealed properly with a penetrating sealer. Cement tiles are an excellent choice for bathrooms, shower walls, and shower floors.
While cement tile is suitable for wet locations, it shouldn’t be installed in exterior locations where it will be exposed to frost or freezing temperatures. Cement tile also shouldn’t be installed where it can experience very heavy loads, such as driveways or garage floors.
Our cement tiles are not fired in a kiln like most other tile types. They are made by hand, one at a time, using a hydraulic press.
Zia Tile’s cement tiles are handcrafted in Vietnam with the finest materials, honed and perfected by artisans using a technique first developed by French and Catalan craftsmen in the 1850s. Each piece is hand-poured into a mold, combining mineral pigments and cement, and then hydraulically-pressed to form.
The highly individualized, handmade process of making our cement tile means no two tiles are exactly the same. There are subtle variations in both color tone and pattern detail that instill more character into our cement tiles than other mass-produced, highly uniform tiles. Our cement tiles are perfect for environments that highlight craftsmanship and authenticity.
Zia’s cement tiles are initially sealed when produced to protect the tile during transit. That said, they must be sealed during installation to guard them fully against grout haze and moisture penetration. We recommend using 511 Porous Plus Sealer from Miracle Sealants, and the sealant must be applied twice – once before grout and then again after grout is complete. For high traffic and commercial areas, we recommend a top coat sealer for added protection.
