Antique Parrefeuille

Parrefeuille tiles were used throughout southern France and are unusual in their rectangular, rather than square, shape. Paris Ceramics selects tiles from a particular area of Languedoc; they were made by hand and fired in wood-burning kilns, a practice which ceased in the nineteenth century. They were made from local earth, roughly sieved, giving them varied texture and beautiful pink and ochre tones.

These tiles are still relatively plentiful, allowing a genuine period character to be introduced into almost any room at a very reasonable cost.
