One of the most common aspects that you observe in the Chettinad is the graceful glass like Athangudi handmade tiles. Athangudi tiles are handmade tiles which are products from cottage industries of Athangudi, Tamil Nadu. Natural colours are mixed with cement and water making it a thick liquid. Later it is laid over a glass base and the design is made on top of the glass. Normally if the design is fixed there would be a metal frame to make the design of different colour combinations.
