A tile design with a long history, star and cross tile designs are the perfect blend of traditional and chic. Their classic, charming design is perfect for anyone seeking to add an artistic flair to their interiors.
Originating in Morocco, star and cross tiles are traditional, handmade tiles usually made out of terracotta and ceramic. Common throughout the Mediterranean, they are a classic Moroccan and Spanish tile design. We’re happy to see this tile design gain appreciation in the United States in recent years.
Star and cross tiles are two alternating, interlocked tiles that form a symmetrically pleasing pattern.
