Handmade terracotta tiles from Parkside

Exclusively available in the UK from Parkside Architectural Tiles, Sugaroni is the authentic handmade terracotta tile for specialist restoration and exclusive interiors.

Sugaroni has been handmaking terracotta tiles since 1685 with a list of projects that includes renaissance buildings and historic architecture across Italy. For restoration projects that need careful attention to the selection of traditional materials, Sugaroni handmade terracotta tiles are faithful to the techniques that have been used for centuries.

The Italian company’s products are now available through the specification experts at Parkside Architectural Tiles. With access to 1200 different shapes and sizes, as well as the possibility for special products to meet the unique needs of restoration, Parkside can help to find the right solution for the most specific of requirements. Sugaroni’s range is also ready for projects that want to create an interior with the unique atmosphere of handmade clay tiles. For luxury residential homes and hotels, the tiles bring a unique and exclusive look that can’t be imitated.

While the way Sugaroni makes its tiles has not changed dramatically since the 17th century, it has implemented modern techniques to improve production efficiency. The tiles are still made with clay from the surrounding Umbrian countryside and it uses locally sourced wood biomass to power part of production. Rainwater is recovered and reused, and Sugaroni also produces energy from solar panels. The result is a handmade terracotta tile that considers its impact and that is responsibly made.

Jonathan Wiles, director of commercial sales, says:

“We’re thrilled to have Sugaroni within the Parkside Architectural Tiles product family. These tiles are a testament to 400 years of craftmanship by the Italian company. For specific restoration work and projects that demand exclusivity, there are few suppliers that match the depth and quality of this historic company. Alongside our extensive portfolio of ceramic and porcelain tiles, our experts can now work with teams on enhancing their projects with these terracotta tiles.”
