Sims Hilditch

We are delighted to share two very special collections of hand painted tiles, created in collaboration with Sims Hilditch – one of the most influential and trusted interior design studios operating today. The studio shares our passion for British craftsmanship, attention to detail and timeless design.

Design Process

Introducing Ana

The Ana collection was inspired by a trip that Sims Hilditch Founder and Creative Director Emma Sims-Hilditch took with Marlborough Tiles Managing Director Jamie Robb to the Amalfi coast, a region with a rich ceramic heritage.

The Ana Collection

The Ana collection features a timeless pattern in the Mediterranean style, available in five soft colours that are beautifully suited to the English home. The subtlety of the colours developed for this design means that the tiles can be used on the walls of a bathroom, kitchen, or even in more unusual spots such as around fireplaces and woodburning stoves, on window ledges and garden tables...

The Emma collection

The Emma collection draws inspiration from delicate vintage floral wallpapers. Each tile is painted by hand, and features our signature crackle glaze – stained by hand for a charming, aged look.
