Tapestry Charcoal

A rather refined Clay Brick with a delicate texture

The Tapestry Collection of Clay Bricks from Shaw Brick features a delicate, lightly-textured finish that lends a refined character of unequalled depth and warmth.

While its understated speckled texture is reminiscent of age-old tapestries found in museums, this brick has all of the modern characteristics that Shaw Brick is known for – long-lasting performance, positive thermal and acoustical properties, eco-friendliness while adding incredible value to your home.

New colour ranges added this year

Our designers are always keeping abreast of the latest architectural brick design trends and we are proud to introduce three new colour ranges this year: a contemporary Platinum Range, a full-bodied Merlot Range and an exquisite Pure Black Brick – all of which are top trending brick colours now.

The Tapestry Brick Collection is also available in Red Range, Brown Range, Magnum Brown Range, Charcoal Range, Mingled Shades, Flashed Range, Manganese Dark Range, Buff Range, and Grey Range.

Drop into a Shaw Retail Centre or one of our independent dealers to see samples of these bricks for sale and to learn more about any product in the Shaw Masonry Collection.
