Loire represents a return to a rustic sensibility with a more modern interpretation of “rustic“. It has very softly chiseled edges and wide shade variation. The final look resembles the stone blocks of castle walls in Europe, rich with history yet situated in the heart of modern cities. There is a wide range of variation in graphics and color and care should be taken to achieve desired blend. Therefore it is important to mix the tile within each carton and blend tile from several cartons during installation.
