In addition to the designs from Wa-Kei, the Japan Ceramic Tile Manufacturers' Association had a small booth at Coverings that held a wealth of unique tiles from various Japanese tile suppliers — I was especially interested in the AGPLUS tiles that are designed to help control humidity levels and odor!
