Custom Design & Manufacture
Using our own specialist factory, Craven Dunnill Jackfield, we combine modern and traditional production techniques to create bespoke wall or floor ceramics to almost any design.
If you can’t find the tile size you need in our vast portfolio of wall and floor tiles we have the facility to produce ceramic wall or floor tiles to almost any shape and/or size.

A palette of 7 standard colours and corner pieces have been designed specifically for this purpose. 10 additional colours and numerous other corner or tile fittings are also available for larger projects.
Bespoke shapes or sizes can be created using the latest water jet cutting technology. A focussed beam of water is fired at extremely high pressure to create a cutting medium which easily and accurately cuts most ceramic tiles (even 20mm thick paviour tiles).
We have delivered many successful projects using this technique, and our service enables the designer to create bespoke tile shapes easily and accurately.
Getting colour, and getting the colour, are two very different things in ceramics.
Our team of glaze experts have considerable knowledge and experience in delivering to specific colour requirements.
With a long history in delivering THE colour required, we have the skills to achieve it, enhance it, and control it in different glaze base chemistries.
