Material: A clay mix is pressed into molds, glazed, and fired at 1,500 degrees F.
Design: Basketweave's "dog bone" visual effect is exaggerated by the flared ends of the nearly matte white pieces. For contrast, the dots are high-gloss black. The tile's "pillowed" edges demand wider grout lines.
Care: Regular sweeping or vacuuming and cleaning with soap are recommended; grit can damage the glaze, and abrasive cleansers can dull it. Porous grout lines can be difficult to keep clean.
