Ragno: Modern Tiles with a Handcrafted Aesthetic, Made in Italy

June 21, 2021

A heritage soul meets a modern aesthetic: That’s the appeal of tiles made by Italian company Ragno. Since its founding in Sassuolo, Italy, in 1949, the company has manufactured tiles for floors and walls that are every bit as rooted in traditional Mediterranean craftsmanship as they are practical, hard-wearing, and high-performing for modern spaces. The tiles are designed and made in Italy but readily available stateside, in styles and colorways that vary to suit the seasons.

Here’s a peek at two of their brand-new collections, Mélange and Look, in inspired, cool kitchens and baths right out of an Italian villa—all Greenguard certified for natural, healthy interiors, too.

Ragno Modern Tiles with a Handcrafted Aesthetic Made in Italy The Mélange and Look collections both have a handmade appeal, with unrectified edges and charming variations and imperfections—despite being made to precision on an industrial scale (an approach the company calls “tradition meets technology”). The square Mélange 3 \15/\16” x 3 \15/\16” tiles are available in nine glossy colorways that add color and reflect light, including the saffron yellow Kaki shown here.

Ragno Modern Tiles with a Handcrafted Aesthetic Made in Italy Tiles in the Look collection are made of glazed porcelain tile and suitable for use on both floors and walls. The \2 3/8” x 9 7/\16” rectangular designs are available in seven colorways, from neutrals Nero (black) and Bianco (white, shown here) to blue green Avio, dark teal Blu, and marigold Ocra.
