WALKER ZANGER UNVEILS NEW “GREEN” TILE COLLECTION -New “Kesh” Tiles Continue Company’s Hand-Crafted Tradition Within the Context of Eco-Friendly Materials.
The new Kesh Collection from Walker Zanger, the world’s most comprehensive stone and tile company, re-imagines the traditional art of cement tile, creating a bold statement for floors, walls and outdoor spaces. The fresh and graphic designs blend the influences of many styles, but finds its primary muse in Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency. Yet Kesh is also in harmony with the planet as the eco-friendly tiles are made with “green” materials such as cement and marble dust, and hand-crafted with the aid of low-energy manufacturing processes.
Borrowing from the traditional artisanship of Moroccan cement tile-making (the collection traces its name to the last syllable of “Marrakesh”), Kesh updates this traditional look in what has become a hallmark of Walker Zanger design reinvention. The Kesh Collection is available in a variety of motifs, including eight-by-eight inch field tiles, squares, hexagons, and four-piece Plus Plus
and round Wink Wink patterns. A traditional arabesque field is also available. The colors in this collection invoke old-world influence:
Kesh is available in tasteful combinations of Khaki, Palm, Crimson, Olive, Cream and Chocolate.
The beauty of the Kesh Collection is matched only by its eco-friendliness. Each tile is hand-made by master craftsmen, who combine cement with pigmented marble dust to achieve a matte finish that is subtly lustrous. Individual tiles are sun-cured, as opposed to
kiln-fired, which, by its nature, is considered a low-energy production method. So while the playful all-over-pattern designs of Kesh combine with its durability to make it applicable virtually anywhere, its “green” attributes support Walker Zanger’s commitment
to environmental responsibility—as well as the discriminating homeowner who employs it.
The Kesh Collection is now available through all Walker Zanger showrooms and authorized dealers.
