Antique encaustic tiles hold history and have many stories. For over 100 years they have been walked upon; their character building with each step. Our antique encaustic tiles are lovingly rescued and carefully salvaged from buildings around the world such as hotels, churches, public spaces and old homes. Being rare, old and handmade, antique encaustic tiles bring a unique feeling of depth and meaning to any space to which they are applied.
Their history, beauty and imperfections simply can not be replicated. Jatana Interiors is Australia’s leading importer of antique tiles. Some of our favourite places to seek antique tiles are Morocco, Cuba, Rajasthan, the Middle East and Southern Europe. With our global reach and extensive contacts we are able to find the most exquisite pieces available.
We are always searching for rarities, the beautiful and the exotic. We seek tirelessly for the unique appeal that comes with the antique tiles. There is nothing more alluring then being able to display these characteristic tiles in your home. Please check this gallery regularly as it is always updated with new arrivals from around the world. Quantities are limited at the source, once sold they are gone forever. You can potentially have the only pattern available.
Antique tiles are also known as encaustic tiles, reclaimed tiles, vintage tiles, hydraulic tiles, Cuban tiles, carreaux de ciment and tessellated tiles. Please visit the Tile Production Process page for more information.
