you asked, we listened – we’re super excited – new designs arriving in June
It would probably be safe to say that when we were pulling together the designs for our new encaustic tile range at the end of last year, we didn’t see a global pandemic coming. Along with most small businesses we have felt the crunch however we know these times will pass, so we are not giving up, we are not going anywhere.
Thankfully as we are a family business and by establishing it only a short stroll from our home, the work from home rule is not an issue. We have been able to continue sending out samples and packaging up orders. Unfortunately we have had to pause on delivering our own tiles across the border, instead adopting what we have always done for those heading to WA, Tas, and the NT by making a ply box specific for the order and sending them off via our preferred courier. At least this way you can be assured they will get there in good order.
The artisans that make our beautiful tiles have also been affected by the global pandemic; first and foremost, their welfare is our greatest concern. We are pleased to hear that with the measures undertaken the impact of Covid-19, that has devastated some countries, has not been the case in Vietnam where we source our tiles from. Yes, life is different there too, they too are having to work differently, socialise differently, however life is gradually returning to normal.
In fact, we are most excited that our new range is now on the water and will be with us in June. We have been busting to share this with you and to post our new beautiful designs on our website. And now we know they are on their way I have a bit of work to do. No more gardening excuses! So, keep your eye on the site for these additions to the range they will be posted progressively over the next few weeks.
You asked, we listened. Each one of us is different. There are those that love to be surrounded in warm, happy, bold colours; others who prefer the simplicity and timelessness of black and white. Our new range includes some of these, but this time we have incorporated quite a few soft, neutral, muted colours which we were not able to offer many of before.
Incorporating a decorative tile can really make your interior or exterior space, and selecting the right design and colourway is so important. That’s why samples of our encaustic tiles are available to purchase. We know how important it is to touch, feel and experience a tile, and to make sure it is exactly right for your home, that’s why we welcome you to order samples before committing.
They are the actual tile. Not a half, quarter, or section of tile, not a colour chip, not a printed card. We package them up securely (I never was particularly good at Christmas wrapping – so please forgive me) and pop them in the post. They are heavy tiles so if you can refine your choices to just a few (I know…it’s difficult) that keeps the cost of shipping down. The good news is the $6 charge per tile is fully refunded with a future order! If you want to order a sample (or a few) let us know which ones and leave your details via our contact page and we will be back in touch with you.
While our collection for in-stock tiles is modest at the moment, our list of ideas for designs is not! So, this won’t be the last new range. We will continue to expand over time, and offer you access to a stunning, timeless, high quality product and a unique range of designs that you are not going to find anywhere else.
Remember to come back again soon and often, I promise to get posting!
