We are a family business focused on designing and manufacturing the highest quality handmade tiles at a sensible price.
All our tiles are handmade in Staffordshire and shipped directly to you from the kiln.
2011 has been our best year to date with orders from top UK designers (including Spencer Churchill and John Nash) and magazine articles appearing on the Jekyll range all over the world. 2012 sees us about to be featured in Architectural Digest (Germany) and Homes and Gardens (London).
We supply the National Trust - Shaw's Corner - with chinaware. The opening of the Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum in London saw us making the VIP opening gift - two presentation tiles in a special gift box. The designer for the Disney store on London's Oxford Street gave us three weeks to produce a one-off design for their Sleeping Beauty castle; we did it on budget and on time.
The British Library has used us to create merchandise for their Henry VIII and Luttrell Psalter exhibitions. The designs we created for the Luttrell Psalter and those inspired by Mrs Beeton were used by various other franchisees to make their own successful products, including oven gloves, towels, placemats and ties.
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) used our merchandise at the Chelsea Flower Show.
We ship all over the world including Australiia, the USA and Europe. We work closely with tile design showrooms in Greenwich, Connecticut and Seattle, Washington.
We have agreements with most major picture libraries and are very skilled at image working - we can usually create something if it does not exist. Examples include a one-off tartan border tile where the only source we were given was a pair of tartan trousers and a 90-file map of Filey, Yorkshire where we had to digitally stitch three historical maps together, colour and add ships and mythical sea creatures to match the client's vision.
Our many private clients come to us to source tiles that are impossible to obtain elsewhere. We value every order large or small, so pick up the phone or email me to find out more.
Prices start from £2.75 plus VAT for a border tile - you will find us very competitive with other companies selling handmade tile (such as Fired Earth). You will also find that we work hard to give you outstanding service.
I hope you will want to work with us - please do not hesitate to ask for any further information you may require
