Peg tiles go back as far back as the 12th and 13th centuries, a time when every English town and village would have had its own clay brick and tile-maker.
Tile sizes varied from region to region until a Royal Charter of 1477 standardised sizes to 10½” x 6¼”, although Kent peg tiles typically remained at 10" x 6".
Down through the centuries, HANDMADE English tiles have been used by the great English architects and influential leaders of design movements.
William Morris, the founder of the Arts & Craft’s movement had HANDMADE tiles on his own home ‘The Red House’.
Sir Edwin Lutyens preferred tile over slate as did CFA Voysey and MH Baillie Scott, to name a few.
