production of inlaid tiles. Five centuries later the Victorians and French rediscovered the techniques involved in producing encaustic tiles; adorning the corridors, entrance halls, bathrooms and service areas of well to do homes.
It is these beautiful homes that we take inspiration from with Heritage’s range of encaustic tiles and boarders. Inspired by tradition and culture, captivating the senses and delivering a stunning visual, Heritage Building Centre’s new range of encaustic tiles mark the very pinnacle of beauty and style.
With a long history, popularised from the thirteenth through to the sixteenth century, then later in the Gothic Revival era of the 19th century, the traditional makings of an encaustic tile is today a sign of the resilience of master craftsmen and their trade, and Heritage is proud to offer these signature tiles as part of an exclusive lineup.
Where traditionally a design is applied to a tile almost as an afterthought, the encaustic tile undergoes a very different journey in its creation.
