Ekobe coconut tiles are made from Bahia coconut endocarp (hard coconut shell) using a patented process. It is a natural product which has no environmental impact. The fact that the coconut shell is made of approximately 50% lignin(natural resin), gives it great resistance to decomposition by micro-organisms and insect attack, as well as a high level of mechanical resistance. Final surface presents a jointless homogeneous texture, a perfect visual solution. The ivory tile is made of the internal part of the coconut. Each mosaic presents an irregular concavous texture, which together forms a colored surface.
