The tiles are handmade by skilled craftsmen, using locally sourced Etruria Marl generally accepted to be the finest clay for strength and durability. This traditional process includes shaping and moulding the clay by hand and applying selected sands to create different colours and textures. This handmaking process naturally brings random undulations and variations that give each tile its unique appearance and character.

Sarah Jackson, marketing product manager at Marley Eternit, comments: “The Canterbury tiles provide the premium character and timeless beauty expected from a genuine handmade clay plain tile, while also offering outstanding strength and durability that will create a lasting legacy.”
