An Encaustic Tile Collection Inspired by Tulum, Mexico

Since we can’t all escape to Mexico every time we need a vacation, Studio Anansi has us covered with an encaustic tile collection inspired by the Mayan coastal town of Tulum. The Tulum Collection is available in two graphic patterns, Trio and Box Grid, each featured in three vibrant colorways that evoke the essence of the tropical locale.

Due to the unique patterns, the tiles can be arranged in various ways to create cool configurations, along with a mix of colors for added boldness. The 8 x 8″ cement tiles are made by hand in Mexico, bringing the collection back around to its origin.
