These tiles look even better in person than on the website. They have a slight metallic finish which picks up reflections of surrounding colors. There also is variation in the size of the "pebbles" . They are a slower go for installation that square or rectangular tiles, and given the irregular shape, it's probably best to use a contractor unless you're very experienced with tiling. I'm using the tiles for a shower floor, but I can see them being used for a kitchen back splash. They are being installed now, so I can't comment on durability, but it should be good as long as they are properly installed.
These tiles are beautiful! They were imported from Tunisia, which took over 3 weeks for delivery...so expect a delay, but worth the wait. The tiles are handpainted, so the design is a little irregular in some areas which made it a small challenge to lay them out in their proper order. This could have been facilitated with some type of illustrated and/or written directions for layout, but there weren't any included. This was the only drawback, but not impossible to overcome. I would recommend these tiles to anyone!
We used this for the backsplash on an outdoor kitchen, and it looks great. It was harder to apply on larger areas and you have to be careful to match the irregular sides carefully or you will have gaps. The quality and looks of the product was exceptional - a great buy.
This tile is gorgeous, with a lot of depth to the color and just a hint of sparkle. Be sure to order enough, since each box of 10 sheets contains 8.14 square feet. I found only 2 problems with this tile. First, all pieces on each sheet are so tightly packed together that there's very little flexibility. This made installation on my contoured shower floor a bit challenging. Second, the irregular shape of each sheet makes installation a giant puzzle. I'd recommend laying out the tile to ensure all pieces fit together to your satisfaction prior to installation. All in all, I'm very happy with this tile and I'd definitely purchase again.
