There are no materials more durable and longer lasting than ceramic tiles when used as a surface covering. Tiles will last the lifetime of a building enduring millions of footsteps, dropped objects, dirt, sand, coffee, wine, the list is endless. There is no debating the many benefits tiles offer...
We just believe there is a better way to do it.
There are more sustainable, non-toxic alternatives to many industry accepted practices. We can reuse waste, recycle water and reclaim energy that we use when producing tiles. There are more efficient and less harmful technologies. That's why we work with suppliers who share our ideas and vision, who want to create change and do the right thing - no matter the cost or effort involved.
