Brief History of Porcelain Tiles
Porcelain hasn't always been the first choice for making tiles — people mostly used materials like terracotta or stone. Early porcelain tiles date from the 15th century China. Ever since then, it didn't take porcelain long to conquer the world.
Before you knew it, European walls were covered in decorative porcelain reliefs. Nowadays, many countries have a tradition of producing recognisable porcelain tiles, like Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey.
Naturally, Britain has a long-standing affection for them, since these tiles became extremely popular during Victorian times. Porcelain was an essential part of every royal or aristocratic place, church, home, and school.
Letta London strives to include only the finest quality porcelain and original design in its offer. Thanks to our longtime partners across the UK, it is possible to create a selection that includes pieces made according to the latest technology that, at the same time, preserve traditional English quality.
