Why Us?

Why Us?

Australia's leading supplier of period inspired tiles.
Then, Now & Forever

Heritage Inspired,

Behind every tile at Olde English Tiles™ lies a story. Our designs span the period from Georgian-Early Colonial, through to Victorian, Federation and Californian Bungalow, as well as the late 20th century. Our aim is to preserve the rich history that lines the streets of Australia and to inject character into contemporary spaces.

The craftsmanship with which are tiles are made, add to the story. Our tessellated and mosaic tiles are made in a 150 year old factory that operates in Northern France. In a world of built obsolescence, you can trust that these tiles will endure. Made from fully vitrified porcelain, they are impervious to water, incredibly durable, weather resistant and colour retentive. Learn more about our tiles

Unlike many Aussie tile companies, we still employ age old techniques to ensure that the job is done correctly the first time - from picking the right pattern for your space through to laying the tiles.

Half a century of experience

We’re the masters of our craft

Founder Antonino Gaudioso, pioneered the tessellated tile industry over 50 years ago, reviving an industry that had been dead for over half a century. The tradition, beauty and know how with which the business was built still holds true today.
