Hidden in an olive grove in Marrakech, every Popham Design tile
is lovingly and meticulously hand-made by skilled artisans.
The history of cement tiles started in France around 1850 where the outstanding durability and aesthetics of this floor covering led to rapid development all over Europe and the rest of the world. In Morocco, the close relation with France and their common passion for architectural design lead to unique creativity around the concrete tile.
Thanks to a hydraulic-press technique that dates from 150 years ago, very little energy goes in to the production of these tiles, consuming almost no energy to manufacture. Popham Design uses recycled packaging, grey water wherever possible and solar powered heating.
Popham Design is our partner and supplier in this adventure and was chosen based on Opia’s strict criteria of
Design, Quality, Ethics and Sustainability.
The proposed models are a small part of Popham’s collection and just a few of our favorites; there are plenty more accessible here. Our boxes include 18 tiles and cover a surface of up to 0.72 sqm depending on the model. You also have the option of customizing your concrete tiles with over 100 colours to choose from.
