The Bespoke Story
If like us you love the finish and colours found in antique tiles, you will love our bespoke makes. Using the best artisan maker in our business, Jaunma and his team specialise in remaking tiles using traditional manufacturing techniques and materials to ensure the patina and colours reflect those found in the original tiles. Select a design from our antique tile gallery and have your dream tile remade for you
The Bespoke Story
At Bert & May, we have a natural talent for spotting beautiful reclaimed tiles, an area we pride ourselves in since starting the company in 2013. Reclaimed finds are naturally limited edition and the perfect sustainable choice, making it rare to come across the design again. We’ve worked with our artisan maker and launched Bespoke, our design service which lets you create your favourite reclaimed tiles, from initial design, mould creation and production to delivery.

How it works
01 Get in touch
Our dedicated remake designer will be happy to discuss your requirements and run through a plan of action. The lead time is based on experience and allows for a little back and forth and is 20 weeks from initial design consultation through to delivery.
02 Choose your design
We have a wide selection of reclaimed classics on the website and in our archive; however, we are able to replicate your favourites. We are happy to offer guidance with your design choice.
03 Create the mould
The design will be finalised, turned into a technical drawing and a mould will be created for your bespoke encaustic tile. There is a deposit of £250 to cover your handmade mould and the assurance of our dedicated remake designer throughout the process, from choosing your colour swatches to creating your samples.
04 Full production
Once approved, your bespoke tile will go into production. Your tiles will then be delivered and ready for your unique project. If you are intrigued by the process, there is the opportunity to visit our maker in Spain and see your tiles in production.
