A shortened historical outline characterizing the current production of ceramics in Tunisia.
It was assumed that the precursors in the production of simple ceramic designs were Sumerians. It is worth mentioning that these people, as for those times, quickly developed the industry and trade of the time, as one of the few to use cuneiform writing. Later on, the Kannanese, better known as the Phoenicians, were a society with great cultural influence on the regions of northern Tunisia. After the establishment of Carthage in what is now Carthage Tunisia, the port of Nabuel, the proverbial window on the world, became the cradle of exquisite ceramic forms and patterns. No one else but Carthaginian artists were the first to invent mosaics, a precursor of patchwork patterns. After the Roman conquest of Carthage, the later Vandal invasion, further peoples marked ceramics with patterns close to their religion and culture. Nowadays, the patterns applied on tiles are a kaleidoscope referring to the faith and creation of many ethnic groups.
Why choose Tunisian patchwork tiles?
If you are on this site and you are thinking about choosing Tunisian patchwork tiles, the question seems rhetorical. You often find the statement exceptional tiles for exceptional people. It is true, the tiles produced in Nabuel are a combination of tradition with new requirements for quality and accuracy. The production method allows for homogeneous tiles, which makes it much easier for the tiles to be placed on a designated surface. The method of applying patterns to the tiles is serigraphy, the prototype of screen printing. Employees, by manually applying colours to the patterns, provide an exceptional aesthetic experience. The patterns on the tiles harmonize with each other and allow for almost artistic placement of the ceramics on the chosen surface. Tiles are fired after glazing, which allows to maintain high durability of tiles.
Patchwork patterns on the tiles, and more harmoniously, allows you to place them in any interior that is important for you. Tiles are ideal for whole walls in the bathroom, kitchen, for example, located in the library, will create a unique atmosphere.
