More about this product

Since 1883, Mosa has been an innovative manufacturer of high-quality ceramic wall and porcelain unglazed floor tile products. Mosa invests constantly in its factories in Maastricht, Netherlands, and uses the latest technologies in production. The Mosa Design Team collaborates with international architects to produce tiles specifically for them.

Based on its celebrated Terra Maestricht® tiles, Mosa has developed a new concept: Terra Tones. These are not tiles in the classic sense but a new, subtle tile surface in restrained ceramic hues.

The tiles in the Terra Tones series have a smooth, powdery finish and a vibrant look. This natural vibrancy can be enhanced by combining different sizes. The tiles in the Terra Tones series are suitable for indoor and outdoor use on walls, floors and terraces.

To provide inspiration, the Mosa Design Team has produced various tile patterns that show off the Terra Tones effect at its best. To see the possible tile combinations and patterns, and download 2D grids in Autocad (.dwg), click here.

Cradle to Cradle® Silver certified

Sustainability is one of Mosa’s core values. The entire programme carries the Cradle to Cradle Silver certificate, which means that it satisfies present and future requirements for sustainable building. The tiles are partially made from recycled materials; no environment-polluting raw materials are used, making the tiles suitable for reuse. ‘Green’ electricity from hydro-electric power stations is exclusively used in production. Mosa tiles are also durable and contribute to a better interior climate.


Terra Tones is a set of three tiles in a single colour group. These colour groups are grey green (215), mid grey (206), anthracite (216) and cool black (203). Each set comprises a light tone (X), a mid tone (Y) and a dark tone (Z), supplied in equal quantities (in m²).


Terra Tones is available as standard in 24 x 24” and planks in 2 x 24”, 4 x 24”, 6 x 24” and 12 x 24”. Various sizes are available on request.

Mosa Pattern Generator

Mosa’s Pattern Generator is a device to create design variations for ceramic surfaces. Once a pattern is chosen, this handy tool calculates the exact number of tiles required. It also automatically generates a working drawing with instructions for the tiler. Freely available online, the Pattern Generator offers a range of formats, grids, textures, and colours. It can also export the design to 2D and 3D software ensuring a smooth design process.
