Lovingly hand crafted, glazed and packed in our Warkworth Factory. Middle Earth Tiles is a family owned and run business working with local people and local clay. At Middle Earth Tiles, we design and develop our products in a way which cares for the environment. We believe that innovation and sustainability can go hand in hand and use clean craft processes and industrial technology to create sustainable products.
These days, when almost everything around us has been made by machine; the warmth and infinite variety of the human touch is especially welcome. Middle Earth Hand Glazed Tiles are an old concept with a new look giving a new dimension to tile finishes. Each tile is held, loved and carefully produced until it is passed onto you.

OUR NEW SHOWROOM IS OPEN!
Easy to find, Middle Earth Tiles have a fantastic new showroom at 136 Great North Road in Grey Lynn. This is just down the road from our old show room and now we have ample customer car parks out front so you can drop by any time!
We're open weekdays from 8:30am - 5:30pm and on Saturdays from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
Since our ancestors lived in caves we have used colour to brighten up our lives and our surroundings. This human behaviour is so ingrained that the idea of colour affecting our mood is more universally accepted than any other human theory. Yet more and more we are seeing so called "experts" telling people that innate truth doesn't apply in your home. For them they wonder why would you want a colourful home that will lift your spirits and become the envy of your friends when you can have the colour Beige throughout your house... or a dull Grey.
We say love the environment you live in. Be proud of who you are, and if your heart really sings out for Grey, we have some stunning hand glazed grey tiles (or beautiful Clinker floor tiles) that will make you the most stylish person in your neighbourhood.
But I'm sorry, we just can't do Beige!
