In the Swahili culture, the term “Kikoy” refers to a garment worn by both men and women. This versatility is reflected in the Kikoy encaustic cement tile by Mazingira. Mazingira’s Kikoy tile pattern has a distinctive series of lines, made up of short, sharp turns, or angles, creating a strong ‘zig zag’ effect. Bring this pattern into your home today for a style statement that is distinctive, dramatic and captivating, all at once. Kikoy patterned tiles could create two different illusions, depending how you look at it. The Kikoy Tile could be used for indoor or outdoor feature walls, or floors.

As with most Mazingira tiles, there is the option to expose the aggregates in order to create a different effect.

Handcrafting these decorative tiles involves a diligent process that demands time, dedication, and attention to detail. Each colour and pattern are filled with love and care, ensuring that every tile is a unique work of art. The uniqueness and distinctiveness of these tiles contribute to their higher value which justifies the higher price tag for those seeking an authentic and one-of-a-kind aesthetic.

Our exquisite tiles are meticulously crafted by hand, and while we strive to keep a small quantity in stock, there may be instances where we need to allocate a lead time if the desired quantity is not immediately available. The duration of the lead time is directly influenced by the size of your order. It is crucial to allow our tiles enough time to cure and attain optimal strength before they are ready to leave our factory. This dedication to the curing process is the very reason behind the necessity of a lead time.

By following these guidelines and taking the necessary steps to properly install and seal your tiles, you can ensure their longevity and maintain their beauty for years to come.

  • The installation process for our tiles follows the same method as other tiles, and we kindly request that you consult our tiling guidelines for detailed instructions on cutting, grouting, and sealing. It is important to share this installation guide with your chosen installer or consider utilizing one of our recommended professionals.
  • Each tile leaving our factory already features one coat of applied sealer, providing an initial layer of protection. Once your tiles have been properly laid, grouted, and allowed sufficient drying time, we advise following our reference guide for applying additional sealer after grouting. This step-by-step guide, which can be found in our installation manual, will assist you in correctly applying the necessary sealer. It’s important to note that the sealer is included with your order at no extra cost.
  • We want to highlight that cutting concrete tiles requires the use of an angle grinder equipped with a sharp diamond tip blade. This ensures precise and clean cuts to achieve the desired results.
