Clay Brick with century-old warmth and character
The Olde English Collection of Clay Bricks from Shaw Brick evokes the warm feelings and character of century-old brick, yet – thanks to modern technology – offers the exceptional strength and durability of today.
Each Olde English brick emerges from the kiln uniquely textured and shaded with just the right amount of colour variation and distressed texture in the brick face. This Clay Brick Collection is available in two colours: Winchester and Essex.
150 years of brick design and quality innovation
While the look and feel might be Olde English, the actual brick is new through and through.
Manufactured right here in Atlantic Canada, Clay Brick from Shaw Brick has been a timeless staple of the construction industry for over 150 years. And, Shaw’s Clay Brick is just as desirable now as it was a century and a half ago thanks to our continuous innovations in product design and quality.
