Collections: Aged French Limestone and Belgian Bluestone FlooringBack
Between the Mediterranean Sea and the northern edge of the Dead Sea, Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world. Settled in the 4th millennium BCE, during it's long history, Jerusalem has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times and captured and recaptured 44 times. One element that has remained constant throughout this time however, is it's building material...Jerusalem Limestone. Since ancient times, this stone has been quarried for all manners of building purposes and can be seen everywhere in Jerusalem. The colors, varied from grays and whites to ochers, reds and rose, this is a stone with undeniable strength, beauty and history. Pavé Tile, focusing on reclaimed and ancient materials, has a passion for this product. Reaching far beyond France's history, this stone bares witness to the birth of civilization. We have a valuable partnership in Jerusalem, one of the most advanced Jerusalem Limestone manufacturers in Israel. They quarry a variety of different Jerusalem Limestones that allow us to offer choices of ancient surfaces, from aged and brushed to honed, to choices of color, from whites to yellows to muted creams and greys. Although we made a detour from Europe across continents, Pavé Tile's Antiquity Jerusalem Limestone is an essential old world building material, harmoniously playing a part in our European flooring products.
