is the Brazilian company responsible for these 100% natural, chemical-free, environmentally-sustainable tiles. The range of colors, textures and patterns must be witnessed first hand – words can’t quite do them justice. View the three lines – Aoba, Aoba Elements and Membira – to see for yourself.

From powder rooms to conference rooms, EKOBE tiles can be used for walls, furniture and flooring. Recommended for indoor use in low traffic areas, the number of potentially stunning style statements is endless. And the finished look is all kinds of sexy.
