Collections: French Provincial and Dutch Delft Wall Tile DecorativesBack
Maison de Tunisie Vintage Terra Cotta Tile is an aesthetic marriage of three cultures: Tunisian, French and American. Inspired designs taken from old Tunisian tiles found in a grandmother's kitchen pair with an American taste for decorative colors that are subdued, with an emphasis on tonal values rather than a confetti of hues. As far as the French influence? That would be my husband, François...growing up in Carthage, Tunisia shown in the photo above with his brother and sister. (François is on the right standing up). This collection has been two years in the making. There are 10 steps to achieve the end product - an artisanal work of art that could easily be mistaken for an antique. This is a hand made, high fired European terra cotta tile that we at Pavé hand paint and kiln fire in our Massachusetts studio. I redrew designs making them our own and we created 8 specific glaze colors that speak of Tunisia yet partner beautifully with the American color palette. This tile collection is suitable for indoors and out, it is frost/freeze proof and perfect for bathrooms, showers and kitchens. There are 19 different motifs that are available in 8 different colors.
