About The Event

After a family member was struggling to find unique tiling for their home renovation project, Kasun and Laura set out in helping them and in turn îlot Colombo was born. With the creation of îlot Colombo, came a history lesson and education in this centuries-old craft of cement tile making. The founders set out to learn from the best cement tile makers in Europe and created their own workshop in Colombo where their tiles are entirely handmade by skilled craftspeople.

Listen to their journey to revive and modernise this centuries-old craft through research, experiments and collaborations with designers, architects and designers at SLDF 2023
