100% Handmade Cement Tiles
All Terrazzo is handmade in Vietnam; these tiles must be treated/considered in a similar manner to a natural product. Each tile is different than the next, as they are made by hand, specific for your interior.
Shade variations are inherent in all handmade tiles. Variation in color, thickness, and size is to be expected. It is possible that the tiles you receive will be slightly different from the sample or display shown to you in the showroom – this is normal.
Goods are sold subject to their normal and natural color variations, and samples given or displayed in the showroom or received by mail are to be considered indicative only.
Encaustic (pressed cement) tiles are made from natural materials including: crushed marble/granite, color pigment & cement.
Subtle color variations and mottling within each tile and from tile-to-tile are normal characteristics and do not compromise the performance of the tiles, but does add to their handcrafted appeal. Our encaustic cement tiles conform to production standard TCVN 6065:1995
Our tiles are suitable for use on residential traffic floors. Just like any handmade terracotta, depending on the traffic, special care may be needed. On floor surfaces, cleaning with a damp mop and mild soap is suggested. Always avoid the use of abrasive products containing bleach, ammonia and/or paint thinner. Never scrub with rough materials that may damage the surface. Our materials are intended for indoor use only.
The client accepts that as these are a man-made product each tile is different from the next. This means each tile will have a varying slip rating.
Bespoke Studio does not recommend these tiles used as a floor finish in high traffic commercial and public external spaces if the client wishes for a consistent and perfect floor finish forever. Our tiles are handmade and will patina with age.
Tiles are suitable for external usage however could fade with sun exposure, installing outside should be done at client’s discretion.
Suitable for use in showers. Our tiles should not be installed in steam showers, saunas, or submerged water applications such as pools, fountains and water lines. It is recommended to prepare the surface with a waterproof membrane. Bespoke Studio will not be responsible for material failures resulting from use over a damaged, defective or improperly prepared surface and cannot be held responsible for replacement of tile used in areas with complete water submersion including, but not limited to pools & fountains.
We recommend the installer to treat the laid tiles with an additional layer of sealant to the surface of the tiles to prevent exterior damage and to enhance the lifetime of the color and longevity of the tile.
Tiles should be retreated/re-sealed each year
Tiles should not be laid in areas (internal or external) that reach freezing temperatures for lengthy periods of time. Bespoke Studio will not be responsible for material failures resulting from freeze thaw, and failure of tile by water damage in these circumstances.
We assume that the tiler has full insurance and capabilities when laying our tiles. It is recommended to use a seasoned artisanal tile installer to help eradicate issues to help ensure a seamless application. We take no responsibility for damages caused to our tiles due to improper and faulty installation methods. This includes but is not limited to the following:

In the case of use on kitchen countertops or working surfaces we always recommend to seal appropriately due to the acidity of liquid spills. Acidity in products being used on the table and excessive heat from kitchen utensils may damage the surface of the tiles. If using around a fireplace or near a stove (such as a kitchen backsplash), care should be taken that our tiles are not exposed high levels of direct heat or open flame.
It is the responsibility of the client or client’s representatives to thoroughly inspect deliveries upon receipt. Bespoke Studio is not responsible for any issues that arise due to improper installation or care. **DO NOT LET THE BOXES GET WET** If moisture permeates through to the un-sealed tiles this may result in staining or efflorescence.

We recommend having the tiles resealed once installed. Please contact the Bespoke Studio team for suggestions of sealants suitable for your specific tile of choice.
Before use of any sealant always read the product directions and carry-out a test on un-laid pieces or in an inconspicuous area to determine desired effect and ease of application.
Sealers will need to be re-applied at intervals recommended by the manufacturer depending on quantity of foot traffic, cleaning frequency/method and amount of UV light exposure.
Encaustic tiles may be used in covered, external areas when correctly installed & treated, however some colors may possibly fade over time with exposure to high levels of UV light. Using an appropriate UV resistant sealer may assist. Consult us if your external application will be subject to regular frost conditions.
Please contact the Bespoke Studio team for suggestions of suitable sealants for your specific tile of choice.
To accommodate variations in tile sizes, wedge spacers can be used when needed to keep tile lines straight. There will be inconsistencies with grout joint thicknesses due to the handmade nature of the material. We recommend grout color to match or slightly lighter. An un-sanded grout is recommended for our Terrazzo tiles.
Please treat all our tiles as a natural material, do not use any harsh abrasive cleaners on our products.
Regular normal maintenance cleaning is recommended using an appropriate pH-neutral cleaner (e.g. cleaners ordinarily suitable for natural stone & terrazzo floors). Never use abrasive cleaners, chemicals or bleach as over time these may affect the natural color pigments of the tiles’ surface. Before use of any cleaner, always read the product directions and carry-out a test clean on some un-laid pieces or in an inconspicuous area to determine desired effect and ease of application.
Bespoke Studio takes no responsibility to damages to the tiles caused by the client using abrasive cleaners, scouring pads and other strong cleaning products on our tile product.
