There is nothing that can compare to the charm and elegance of a handmade tile. Each one is unique, custom made and finished by hand by an artisan who has perfected their craft over years or decades; a craft handed down for thousands of years.
Factory-made tiles can’t measure up. The tiles made by Otto Tiles and Design are the end product of a land which has been home to countless cultures and peoples throughout history, and many of our designs have been inspired by their ancient crafts – taken from archaeological moulds or handed down from master to apprentice throughout the generations. Combined with a contemporary art perspective, our patterns reflect the experience of our artists and our culture as a whole, allowing our handmade tiles to become true pieces of art.
We are happy to work with a variety of traditional Turkish and Moorish materials, including Turkish cement sands, so we can proudly sell handmade ceramic tiles, handmade cement tiles, and handmade mosaic tiles. While ateliers all over Turkey and further West were closing, we looked at the work that they traditionally completed and realised that there was still a place for this beautiful art today. By combining exciting new engineering techniques with the work of the ancient masters, we were able to make sure that the art of handmade tiles continues on!
Based in London, Zurich and Istanbul where the exotic east meets modern west, we bring together new technology with old world techniques. We are a specialist and unique international exporter of exclusive hand crafted cement tiles, and Topkapi Palace ceramic tiles
