Who says scrap is useless? You might actually enjoy scrap, especially with the Slate-ish tiles, offered by Straws, Sticks & Bricks, a local retailer. These tiles are made from 100% post industrial waste paper laminate material. The tiles have derived their name “Slate-ish” from their textural and slate-like appearance.

How are slate-ish tiles made?

It is a paper composite tile made from Richlite material production waste.Richlite is used in making kitchen counters, other residential counters, skateboards, etc. After cutting its slab/pieces into customer sizes for these applications, SS&B purchases the scrap and uses it as a primary raw material. The company is able to use almost any size of scrap. All incoming material is sorted by color. Colors can vary a bit since some of the scrap is much older than others. It is, then processed into square and rectangle tiles. By mixing the scrap a subtle variation in color enhances the product. The product is non porous and is not sourced from mines as traditional stone mosaics are.


They are suitable for all kinds of indoor vertical applications, both horizontal and vertical applications including flooring. You can use these tiles in your homes, offices, shops, restaurants, bars, etc. You can cut it into logo shapes for your reception and lobby areas. These tiles are not recommended for external use.
