Posts Tagged ‘Encaustic tile’

Happy New Year to you all, we hope you have had an enjoyable holiday! As we all embark upon new aims and fresh ambitions, here are some designs to offer some renewed inspiration. I have brought together a few examples from some of my favourite collections, which all draw upon the older and retro to create the new and contemporary. Enjoy!

Ilsa Lovat, printed linen-cotton.
