Pebbles-on-tile product developed
April 19, 2001
Island Stone of Capitola, CA, has developed a method that produces the color and feel of small pebbles on tile without the tedious labor. Every stone the company uses is hand-picked from the Indonesian Archipelago, and the mesh tiles are pieced together by hand to create a smooth tile that is unique and uniform. Outstanding durability makes the stone tiles perfect for use in shower floors, swimming pools, backsplashes for natural stone counters and entryways, according to the company. Stone choices include exotic colored pebbles, tumbled quartz, tumbled marble and natural molten marble. Tiles are available in squares, rectangular borders, interlocking squares and interlocking borders.
