The development of Earthenglass began in 2008 when Kim Hauner, president of Interstyle, was looking to reinvent the glass tile industry with a fresh, sustainable product. What he came up with was a completely new kind of glass tile that captured the rising value of sustainability. Earthenglass is crafted and textured by hand, and comes in a range of natural colors that are also derived from recycled materials. Interstyle can create varied shapes, textures, and finishes for Earthenglass, such as anti-slip grading. Read on to see how it all breaks down.
