Our Tortuga Tile, part of our Relief Tile collection, elevates the popular ‘fish scale’ tile shape by adding distinctive, hand-crafted relief sure to make your installation stand apart from the rest. Whether finished in classic neutrals or in bold, vibrant glazes, Tortuga is as versatile as it is unique.
Check out some of our favorite Tortuga installations below:
1. To the ceiling!
Use this tile to draw your eye upwards to accentuate your ceiling height with a feature wall! Go a step further by using a single glaze modernizing your space by creating a contemporary feature in any installation.
2. Be BOLD
With its distinctive relief, Tortuga is a star candidate for color glazes that react to relief. Colorful glaze combinations add personality and make for a bold and beautiful statement in your home.
3. Turn it around!
Rotate your Tortuga Tile and arrange your installation pointed toward the sky! This is a spin on our ever-popular layout adding a dramatic flair to a classic orientation.
4. The power of grout
Use a light, low-contrast grout for subdued elegance or add a punch of drama with a grout that contrasts your glaze of choice.
5. Pattern play
Can’t choose just one glaze? Combine multiples into a colorful palette incorporated into a feature in your backsplash, bathroom, or feature wall.
