Soft glass tiles
Soft Glass tiles
The Soft Glass tiles are made of real glass. The stones are coloured on the back and have a protective coating to prevent them from scratching. Soft glass is characterised by its rounded corners, which feel soft and smooth to the touch. Soft glass is frost-resistant, so it is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and gives every mosaic an individual look thanks to its beautiful depth effect.
Softglass tiles are available in polygonal (irregular) shapes as well as in 10x10mm and 20x20mm sizes and in many bright colours. A selection of colours with a shimmering metal glitter effect are also available in the mosaic range.

In the Roman Empire and ancient Greece, even huge, breathtaking mosaic masterpieces were created that are difficult to describe in words. That is why this period is also known as the peak of mosaic.
