Bert and May began with our founder Lee Thornley tracking down and salvaging antique tiles across Spain and it's still very much our passion today. We hunt for rare and beautiful finds from across Europe. What makes reclaimed tiles so special? They are limited edition in the true sense of the word. There may be no other existing examples of that tile anywhere else in the world! And they were made when things were done properly, in the time honoured way by true craftsmen. Since then they have worn a little, weathered a little and developed a character that can never be captured by mass produced modern tiles. Our reclaimed tiles are shipped to you directly from Spain.
