Kimono-like Kanoko

Inspired by a Japanese traditional Kimono pattern, this delightfully simple collection from Inax does a lot of what we love when it comes to tile.

The small repeat mosaic pattern of curved-edge hollow squares of Kanoko comes in two colours – Black and White – with each sheet featuring the sporadic inclusion of gloss tessera that contrast against the blanket of matt tone.

The name Kanoko is given to represent dappled spots like you would find on the back of the fawn, with a similar effect created by the unusual shapes of the tesserae.

These shapes, when paired with any number of grout colours, transform in appearance, allowing the grout to produce striking features and spectacular visions.
