good stuff we see and do
In the Factory: Tile in the City
 
As you may have heard, our San Francisco factory is here. The hum of energy, of making, that we discovered 10 years ago when we walked inside the Heath Sausalito factory for the first time has made its way to San Francisco. We recently fired the first kiln in our new tile factory, which is now a center hub of activity in our creative campus. Inside, our perfectly imperfect tiles are made by real people, glazed with our traditional technique and fired in one of our three new kilns.
 
We’re excited about the possibilities of this new space and that our vision of bringing a very different kind of tile showroom experience together with the making process is complete. In our Heath tile showroom, we have a tile bar design that displays all of our glaze samples (just like an old-school library card catalog) and a countertop with stools to make it easy to lay out your next project idea. We also made a rotating tile inspiration board wall and have tile installations throughout the space to help get the creativity started.And if you can’t make it in person, you can still explore the story behind our Heath tile here (and even more inspiration).
