A Closer look at the Winchester Tile Company

Friday 29 January 2016, Written by Laura Tompkins Tags: Wall

You may not be aware that the renowned manufacturer The Winchester Tile Company is also part of the Original Style group and one of our most beautiful and loved collections. The tiles are produced here in Devon in our Exeter factory and the glazes are formulated and mixed using traditional methods.

The Winchester Tile Company is made up of three collections; Artisan, Classic and the Residence range which features beautifully crafted glossy field and brick tiles and stunning patchwork patterns in the form of our Chateaux Collection. Chateaux is thoughtfully designed and suitable for use anywhere in the home, they create a wonderful tapestry effect as shown above

The Classic collection features a selection of hand painted tiles from charming English Delft to beautiful bees and butterflies as well as a huge selection of coloured field tiles and mouldings. A special waterfall glazing technique is used on the gloss field tiles which usually results in two fully glazed edges on each tile, eliminating the need for a special trim piece such as a bullnose.

The Artisan collection features softer colours and more mellow tones which are great for creating a timeless interior, choose from 12 gloss glaze colours as well as six crackle glazes.
