Showcasing a fabulous variety of natural pigments and heritage designs the reclaimed tiles sourced by Maitland & Poate are rescued from Palacios, Cortijo's, ancient farmhouses and crumbling buildings across Spain.

Meticulously restored to ensure its vintage patina the tiles create characterful new floors and feature walls.

Maitland & Poate is a family-run business. Driven by a passion for stunning tiles and interiors they travelled throughout Andalucia in Southern Spain determined to find the highest quality handmade tiles reclaimed from properties throughout Spain. The batches can vary slightly this is what gives them their special character and charm. The company also supplies new encaustic cement tiles in stunning designs, handmade using the original techniques from Valencia and Cordoba. Plus eco friendly lime paints made in Sweden.
As well as selling reclaimed and new encaustic tiles from Spain, Maitland & Poate supply Swedish Lime Paints (Kalklitir). This natural, textured paint comes in soft earthy colours. The finish is both textured and deep, adding warmth and character to a room. The paints are eco-friendly and far healthier to live with than many oil or emulsion paints.
