Bert & May was born when after selling reclaimed tiles our founder Lee met Juan Menacho (or Juanma) in 2010 in Spain. Juanma was an owner of a small family business specialising in making artisan encaustic tiles using traditional handmade techniques but had had to close his factory. Lee was inspired to make his own vintage-inspired designs and the two of them decided to work together on launching a Bert & May collection of handmade tiles, the factory re-opened and our first tile designs were launched! Juanma's tiles are raw, extra chalky and muted. They are hand poured using traditional methods and natural pigments. 

Starting at £99 per sqm, delivery is £150 per order as they will come direct to you from Spain.
