About Fireclay Tile:

Since 1986, our focus has been hand crafting heirloom quality tile, glass, and brick, using the highest practical concentration of recycled materials. With a passion for supporting local manufacturing, all products are made right here in California. We are recognized as industry leaders in innovation, which is essential to our brand DNA.
