2.5″ x 12″ Accent Woven Stainless Steel Subway Tile


Part of the Southern Girl Stainless Steel Collection, each 2.5″ x 12″ 3D Accent Woven Stainless Steel Subway Tile is Handcrafted in our very own workshop right here in the USA. Our Accent Woven tiles are curved and produce a unique wave pattern whether offset or stacked- vary that offset to find various wavy illusions! If you want to achieve the woven effect with this tile, you will have to offset it by 1/3 of the tile.  That will produce the woven effect, but will create an unusual distribution of the tile joint lines.  Even our flat tiles are phenomenal with under-counter and spot lighting, but the 3D woven tiles take it to another level of Metallic Luxury. Tiles sold individually. (Actual size: 2.6″ x 12.24″) 4.5 tiles per square foot. The front and all 4 sides are stainless steel. Choose the Backer of your choice, with Hardboard (Eucaboard made from Eucalyptus trees) being the most popular, and  Fiberock (similar to cement board) chosen for high-moisture areas such as showers and outdoor areas. Not recommended for use on floors. **Please see below for additional information on Backer Types**

Half-Tiles 2.5″x6″ Accent Woven Subway Tile available.  For a “striped” or “ribbon” effect, alternate rows of accent woven tiles with rows of flat tiles – Because the accent woven tiles are curved, they reflect differently than the flat tiles, so they will appear to have a slightly different color when next to a flat tile. Flat tiles available in all sizes, including this same 2.5″ size family:  2.5″x3″ Tile , 2.5″x6″ Subway Tile , and 2.5″x12″ Subway Tile.

Other Accent Woven tiles available in 2.5″x3″4″x4″ and 4″x8″ sizes.

Hardboard Backing Hardboard Backing (HB) is 3/16″ thick and makes a 0.28″ thick accent woven metal tile that has a thickness similar to porcelain or ceramic tiles.  Our most popular backing choice, HB is ideal for LOW-moisture areas and is chosen for kitchen backsplashes (even behind sinks and gas ranges in residential kitchens), high-heat areas such as fireplace surrounds, and many residential and commercial wall applications.

Tile has stainless steel on front and all 4 sides. Grout is optional and not required. If grout is chosen, please choose a non-sanded grout (grout without sand).

The HB we use is called Eucaboard, which is made with eucalyptus wood fibers tempered by coating with a thin layer of linseed oil and baking at a high temperature to polymerize the oil. This provides more water and impact  resistance, hardness, rigidity and tensile strength. Unlike particle board, it will not split or crack. It is used in construction and furniture.

Fiberock Backing Fiberock (FR) backing is 0.25″ thick and makes a 0.35″ thick accent woven metal tile. FR recommended for HIGH-Moisture areas that have water running over the walls/tiles. Very popular backing choice for commercial kitchens/bathrooms, showers, outdoor kitchens and firepits. Also popular when mixing with other thicker, natural tile/stone products (FR-backed tiles have similar thickness and sets with same mastic).

Tile has stainless steel on front and all 4 sides. Please note: FR is a thicker backer than hardboard and does protrude from the back side of the metal tile approximately 1/16″. Therefore, the White Fiberock WILL BE SEEN at the bottom 1/16″ of the tile’s side profile. This usually isn’t a problem, as when tiles are installed in areas with moisture high enough for the need of FR, then grout (non-sanded grout) will be required to fully seal out the moisture, and therefore trim pieces will be needed. We offer trim pieces, and Schluter is always a good option for trim pieces as well.FR is made from 95% recycled material and is manufactured from an environmentally sustainable, specially engineered combination of  synthetic gypsum and cellulose fibers. It has an integral water resistant composition that offers durability, superior performance, and exceptional tile bond. FR is engineered to meet water-, mold- and indentation-resistance under or behind the tile.

Please note that FR orders are considered “Custom Orders,” as they are made to order and may take an additional 3-5 business days for processing.
