Sale to private individuals and professionals

This company is specialised in the production of ceramic tiles – floor tiles, square and hexagonal tomette floor tiles and earthenware tiles for kitchens and bathrooms.

The company uses all enamelling and decoration operations. It is one of the few businesses in France to have this high-quality know-how. The clay is extracted from quarries with the quality label, selected with care by the workshop. The artisans moisten the clay, extrude the paste, and cut and shape the clay by hand. Then come the stamping, drying and firing processes.

The clientele includes private individuals who buy at a factory outlet. Businesses account for a large share of the clientele; the company also regularly works with institutional customers
