What are Split Face Tiles?
Split face tiles are manufactured by cutting natural slate to different heights, widths and depths, then arranging them together by hand in a staggered, multi-levelled structure to achieve a uniquely textured mosaic design. They are a fabulous undulating 3D natural stone mosaic, which is comprised of strips of natural stone, cut into linear strips, and arranged into a staggered 3D surface. This gives these trendy tiles their dramatic aesthetic combined with practical properties that make them easy to fit and look seamless on your walls!
