Some say the technique was developed in 18th Century in Italy using natural colors of granite and marble and cement. According to another, “the encaustic cement tile appeared at the end of the XIX century, in the south of France.
Several sources say the first encaustic tiles were made in France near the country’s first Portland cement plant. Until the 1920’s, they were considered as ultimate high-end flooring that decorated the palaces of the Tsa, the mansions of the Côte d’Azure, Gaudi’s Barcelona and Berlin’s official buildings. Later on, the encaustic cement tile expanded as a creative and durable coating all over Europe, and the French, Spanish and Portuguese colonies.
Around 1858, the French came to Vietnam, and they also brought with them the techniques and equiments to produce cement tile. Being a handmade product, labors play the most important factor of the production while Vietnamese people are always known for being clever, skilled and hardworking. Therefore, Encaustic Handmade Cement Tile could be known as the tradition of Vietnam. People can easily find in Vietnam many hundred-year old houses, public buildings, villas or palaces with floors remaning luxury beauties such as Hochiminh post office, Saigon Notre-dame Cathedral...
