Customer Questions & Answers

Can you tell me where this tile is manufactured? Thanks.

Asked by: Lori
Good Morning, Our Essence Spiral Cascade is manufactured in China. We receive these tiles from a company called Seed Mosaic and have been very pleased with the quality. These tiles feature wonderful pops of color, including red, blue, yellow and orange contrasted against a milky white base. This high gloss tile with its creative glazing technique creates a multi-dimensional look to add interest and flair to any room. You can also feel free to contact our Customer Service department at 800-963-7652 with any other questions you may have concerning our products. Thanks for your interest in our products! Hope that helps!

Is the main color white? FSDESPCS 202829199

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Elaine, I would say this tile's base color is a beige with darker edges and flecks running through it. Because personal interpretation and monitor color can vary, you can order samples through our company's website at, to see if you like the product before ordering. However, since this tile is sold by the sheet, it may be a better option to simply order one sheet and return the product if it is not to your liking. If you need any help, please feel free to call our customer service line at 800-963-7652. Thanks for your interest in our products!

Is this tile suitable for a steam room? Is the PEI II hard enough or is it too porous?

BTW, the two answers about the spiral essence color match are conflicting. I will assume that the answer from Merola is correct, since they are the manufacturer. However it is still not possible to purchase a single tile in sand from HD - they sell the 4x4 and the 6x6 only by the case. Additionally, it is a shame that the subway tile cannot be used with the spiral and square mosaics. The tiles do match, but the grout spacing in the subway is much larger, making it look different from the other two.

Hi MLKR, PEI does not refer to the porous nature of the tile, that would be the water absorption spec. PEI refers to the durability and scratch resistance of the tile. This tile absorbs very little water and thus would be fine for a steam room wall or floor. It is not extremely slip-resistant, though, so you may want a more slip-resistant tile for the flooring. I only see 1 answer (ours) on that other question, so I'm not aware of what conflicting information you're viewing. The Essence Sand is the matching color, though, in case you need that info. Hope that helps!

Which 4x4" matches the white in this mosaic? Is it the ivory (FSD4EIV), the sand (FSD4ESD) or the vanilla (FSD4EVN)?

It seems that there is a family of tiles and that the essence square cascade and the essence spiral cascade and the 4x4 essence ivory, sapphire, sea blue and scarlet can be used together. I am not sure if the essence subway mosaic is close enough, but it seems to me that the essence sand and essence vanilla are not close enough. It is important to get this right, since Home Depot does not sell samples and these tyles are not available through your stores.

Good morning! If you are looking to match the white/beige tile in the Essence Spiral and Essence Square, the 4x4 in Sand is the tile you're looking for. It also comes in a 6x6 tile, which will be available on shortly!

Essence Spiral Cascade 12 in. x 12 in. x 9 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more attractive in person! Really nice mosaic pattern. Better in person than the small photo on the website. It has NO orange in the colors, and has two blues, an aqua blue and almost royal blue. I bought 20 tiles, color is consistent through out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most beautiful tile! We laid this mosaic on our entry floor. It is gorgeous. The colors are perfect. We grouted with a medium gray.The tiles were bigger than I was expecting...they were the right size...but I somehow I was expected tiny mosaics. The little tiles are 1" x 1" and 1"x2". They round off on the sides and fade to a gray color.Everyone who walks in comments on how stunning it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good colors We searched a long time for tiles for our kitchen back splash. I wanted something with a light-colored base, but with accents of colors that would co-ordinate with my canisters and general color scheme of difference primary colors. These tiles fit my criteria perfectly. The picture online is pretty accurate.
