Handle with care!
Flaky is a word often used to describe England's middle-order batting displays - but it is an ideal word for these tiles - they are incredibly soft - two of the ten tiles I bought broke under their own weight when getting them out of the box. Not a major problem as I was going to need to make many cuts for the particular job I had, but if I was going to use them on a floor, where whole, unbroken tiles are a decided bonus I would not have been too impressed.
If tiling a floor with these little beauties you'll need to pay attention to getting a good even bed of adhesive down as I can't see them being strong enough to cope with a few random dobs of adhesive on the back.
The appearance was a bit of a shock. The website shows 4 or 5 tiles, so you'd think this would be a representative sample of what you're gonna get. Oh no! Of my ten tiles, two were nearly black one decidedly pink & two a lairy deep red! Whilst attractive, the contrast in colour and surface finish is far greater than shown on website so beware and only go for these if you want something truly individual & radical.
Having said that, they are an attractive, individual tile. They are delicate and care needed with mixing up the colours as the variations are huge!
