Made A Mano Tiles

Made_A_Mano_Tile Novecento collection

Oh heavens - is it normal that the above photo makes me weak in the knees?  It is from the website for Made A Mano tiles, from their Novecento collection.  This collection features silkscreened designs from the nineteenth century and is their tribute to the style found in the Aeolian Islands. Ah, so pretty!

Made_A_Mano_Tile Novecento collection

Made A Mano was founded in 2001 by these two ladies, NanaKi Bonfils and Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer.  They have the most beautiful patterns and glazes, and everything is handmade, from the tile cutting to the glazing.  The designs are either hand-drawn, hand printed, or silkscreened.

They also make countertops and sinks, and these beautiful lava stone boards below from the lava of Mt. Vesuvio and Mt. Etna.  The texture, profile, and designs on the boards are stunning.  I would love a white and a blue one!

The other tiles they do are so one-of-a-kind - they would really be the showpiece in any space.  I am thinking of ordering a catalogue... just for fun...

Wow... just... WOW.  Thanks to Danielle at The Style Files for originally featuring them!

  1. Oh my goodness - these are divine! I'm dying over that herringbone floor. I want one of those boards, but I'm guessing it won't fit in my budget at the moment :(

  2. WOW!! So beautiful!! The colours they choose are stunning! Not to mention the pottery bowl they have paired one of the boards with ;)

  3. Aren't they amazing Michelle? They do look expensive... but real works of art!

  4. beautiful! the sea green tiles would be beautiful in a bathroom. and the aqua...swoon. you should definitely get a catalog!

  5. It can't hurt, right? Just for a little inspiration? ;p
