Our tiles are handmade and hand painted. The designs we have selected from around the world stay true to the rich history of their origins. Many of our designs have been around for hundreds of years and can be seen throughout Spain, Portugal, Morocco, the Mediterranean, Mexico, The Middle East, Italy and France. Our tiles are exquisite and have a charm, warmth, romance and antique feel that is unmistakable.
Old World Tiles only stocks the finest quality ceramic tiles. All of our tiles are inspected prior to import and we never accept tiles that are seconds or off-cuts. Our tiles showcase painted designs that are timeless and have been created by true artisans. We do not stock tiles with lacklustre paint work or bland colours.
Old World Tiles products are handmade and no two tiles are identical. Our tiles have been used in many of the finest homes and commercial applications in Australia and throughout the world. Colours used in our tiles may vary from batch to batch and while we will assist you in your selection when asked, we are unable to guarantee colour matching because our suppliers deviate with their colours from time to time.
Old World Tiles are authentic tiles and are not imitations. For many many years, tile manufacturers have attempted to recreate these tiles and time and again their attempts have fallen far short of the authentic tile. The colours used in authentic handmade tiles are vibrant, not lacklustre substitutes. The painting technique and designs customary in real authentic tiles result in a uniquely organic tile full of character. The gorgeous variations between tiles simply cannot be imitated by modern techniques, paints, molds and other mass production practices. Our tiles are not imitation tiles which when used result in a bland feature that has very little tradition and lacks warmth.
The character and old world charm inherent in our tiles is the reason we named our niche tile enterprise, Old World Tiles.
