Colonial

The perfect blend of old and new in a Clay Brick

Colourful and popular bricks, Shaw Brick’s Colonial Collection is the perfect blend of old and new in a contemporary clay brick. The random textures and colouring of each brick create unique
patterns with each installation.

Inspired by the great colonial brick building traditions

Inspired by the great building traditions of New England and Atlantic Canada, the Colonial Collection evokes the time-honoured colours and textures of classic colonial masonry with colour variations, dimpling and distressed textures in the brick face.
