Our Italian ceramic tiles are created in small workshops in Deruta by artisans using techniques passed down from generation to generation. Quimper Faience, pronounced “kem-pair” has been manufactured in Quimper a town in Brittany, France for over 300 years. Since Roman times, Quimper has produced desirable pottery. The Henriot Faiencerie was founded in 1690 by Jean-Baptiste Bousquet who was given a royal manufacturing license by King Louis XIV. Each Quimper faience tile is completely handmade and painstakingly hand-painted. One artist handpaints each ceramic tile from start to finish. Each piece of Quimper is then initialed by the artists and marked Henriot to ensure its authenticity. We hope you enjoy browsing through our Italian and Quimper French Ceramic Tile catalogue.
