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
