Recycled Wine Corks Make Unique Penny Tile...!

This is a great design by Jelinek Cork in reusing wine corks (otherwise thrown away) to create unique penny tile flooring.
To make the tiles, Jelinek Cork takes old wine corks which “are cut into circular discs about 6mm (1/4″) thick and glued on a special paper backing to form interesting and unique mosaic patterns.” The material is adhered to the subfloor and grouted like tile, and then covered with urethane, like other kinds of cork flooring. Individual cork discs can be stained different colors to produce patterns. Cork can also be combined with other tile materials in a floor to provide even more design options.
