Our ethos

At Marlborough Tiles, we transform humble objects into works of art. Think of wall and floor tiles and you’re likely to imagine functional rectangles in busy areas like bathrooms, kitchens and halls. But for us a tile is where science meets art. Each one represents the sum total of experimentation, learning, technique and passion passed down for generations.

A heritage of craftsmanship

We were founded more than 85 years ago, and our tiles have been collected by Queen Mary and can be seen in the Victoria & Albert Museum. Today, as a company of makers, artists, technicians and designers, we are leaders in contemporary tiles – pioneering new colours, new shapes, new techniques and new concepts. Put simply, we make what others can’t.
