Panama Weave

Size: 1/2 x 1/2", 1/2 x 4", 1-3/4 x 4"

  • Color: Himalayan


Additional Visual Information

Traditional basketweave pattern recreated through mixed-media mosaics that juxtapose textures, colors and finishes through a combination of glimmering, hand-crafted glass from our Agate series, and natural white, statuary marble with a honed finish.

Pattern is available in 6 colorways. Each colorway uses natural stone from the same quarry, but different glass color from our Agate series. The honed stone has a matte, smooth surface. The glass mosaics show hand-crafted characteristics including variation in color, shade, size, and surface texture, such as fissures, folds, and bubbles, as well as occasional chipped sides/edges.

Notes on Material

Vesuvio mosaic patterns combine hand-crafted glass from our Agate series, and natural white, statuary marble. These materials create a contrast of textures, colors, and finishes. Vesuvio field patterns are larger stone tiles from the same marble quarry, but without glass.

Glass characteristics will show variation in color, shade, size, minor edge irregularities (including occasional chipped sides/edges), and surface texture (such as fissures, folds, and bubbles). These are common, natural characteristics of our handmade glass tiles and should be expected. These characteristics are the direct result of the artisan's interaction and craft with the glass medium, producing one-of-a-kind tiles intended to enhance the beauty and tone of the space.

Natural stone is a product of nature, and no two stones are exactly alike. Because of the natural variation in this type of material, there can be inherent color variation and/or vein & fossil variation within lots. Therefore, variations in color, pattern, texture, and veining must be accepted prior to installation. To achieve optimal results in shading, layout and design, tile should be randomly selected from multiple boxes during installation. We recommend a minimum of 10% overage on all orders. Please take care when grouting and protect surface from abrasion. Installation constitutes acceptance. We advise retaining control samples to aid in color matching if additional material is required (match not guaranteed). Since variations are common in natural stone products, we recommend final selection be made from an actual tile mock-up.

 Natural stone must be sealed prior to the grouting process, again upon completion of installation and periodically thereafter to enhance and maintain the beauty of the stone.

Samples and photos are representative but may not indicate all variations of natural stone or our handcrafted glass tiles.

Please review the Recommended Usage & Floor Applications charts before purchase, and see our Stone/ Vesuvio Installation Guidelines for further information.

Series overview

  • White Natural Stone & Hand-Crafted Glass Mosaics from Agate Series
  • 4 Mosaic Patterns in 6 Colorways (Mesh Mounted)

From a heritage of mosaics erupts Vesuvio—a mixed media mosaic series that combines glimmering glass with natural white marble. Elegant yet durable, the natural stone creates a beauty only achieved after millions of years of nature working her magic. The glass is evocative of semi-precious stone found in volcanic formations. In concert, the simple geometric patterns become the timeless foundation for many interior styles.
