The magnificent past civilisations of the Orient and the Mediterranean produced some truly splendid ceramic tiles. We often admire wonderful examples of these in museums worldwide as well as in well preserved buildings.
Our passion for ceramics was inspired by these antique examples which we wish to share with you. We have developed a unique collection of tiles which reflect the ancient designs and colours of historic masterpieces. Our craftsmen hand paint each individual tile using the same skills as in the past.
We want to share with you the subtle refinements of the orient and the sunlit shades of the Mediterranean.

Decoration techniques

The in glaze decoration
The tile pattern is first silk screened with a dark color and then the rest of the colors are hand painted on the glazed but not fired tile. For some lines (Cotto ,Nostalgia and Asori ) once all the colors are applied, the tile is glazed with transparent craquelé glaze and fired up to 1040 centigrades. For the Cotto line the earthenware biscuit is handmolded.
The Nostalgia, Asori and Omeyyad tiles are 11mm thick.

The third fire technique
The black outline is applied to the surface of a glazed and fired tile and the colors applied by hand. The decorated tiles are fired to a temperature of 980 centigrades where the colors melt into the glaze of the ceramic tiles coferring them a caracteristic luster. For the third fire technique we often use 8 mm thick biscuit.
