Shibui: [shi-bu-e]
origin: Japanese

1. austere; elegant; refined; quiet; tasteful; understated; subtle

The Shibui collection takes inspiration from the Japanese aesthetic of beauty that celebrates subtlety and simplicity. Elegant and tranquil on the surface, there is more to Shibui than meets the eye. The contemporary, smooth-edged tiles are handmade by artisans who stretch and pull together layers of transparent and opaque glass to create complex variations in shade, tone and texture. Shibui's dual nature captivates in 14 colors and two finishes.

Note on handcrafted material: Our hand-made process incorporates creases, wrinkles, waves, bubbles and other surface effects indicative of hand-made glass, all designed to capture light and enhance the final beauty of the project. Variation in color, shade, surface texture, size and minor edge irregularities (including occasional chipped sides/edges) are natural characteristics of all our products and should be expected. Samples and photos provided are representative, but may not indicate all variations of these characteristics.
