05/23/2017 - M S International, Inc. Announces Stile® Kosher Certification


M S International, Inc. (MSI), North America’s leading supplier of natural stone slabs, hardscaping materials, porcelain tiles, and ceramic tiles, is pleased to announce that its entire line of Stile® Gauged Porcelain tile slabs is now Kosher certified with the Seal of the Kosher Trust (Seal-K). Seal-K certification makes Stile® Gauged Porcelain slabs suitable for Kosher food. MSI’s Q™ Premium Natural Quartz line is also Kosher certified.


Seal-K is widely recognized by both US and European rabbinical authorities and approved by some of the most respected names in Kosher supervision. Guided by the highest standards, members of the Seal-K team are certified by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel.

“Now that Stile® is Seal-K certified, we’re able to offer families and businesses over one dozen Kosher porcelain tile slabs in the most sought-after colors and patterns,” says Sam Kim, Vice President of MSI. He adds, “the feedback we received about Q™’s Seal-K certification was entirely positive—and we look forward to the same response with Stile®.”

Stile® is a large-format, lightweight porcelain slab, suitable for virtually every interior and exterior design project including flooring, accent walls, showers, backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, and countertops for the 12mm thickness. Stile® is available in two sizes (126”x63” and 118"x59") and two thicknesses (12mm and 6mm). The line comes in polished and matte finishes—with the matte finish featuring a low-gloss shine with stone-like texture. Stile® Gauged Porcelain tile slabs are an especially smart design solution for remodels, as they easily install over existing surfaces—resulting in a luxurious, updated look at an affordable cost.

In addition to being Seal-K certified, Kosher families will appreciate that Stile® is low-maintenance, impervious to germs and bacteria, and etch, stain, and heat resistant. These features make Stile® 12 mm slabs an outstanding choice for kitchen countertops. What’s more, Stile®’s large format minimizes distracting grout lines, resulting in a near seamless appearance that promotes an overall sense of elegance.
