  • Is price more important than quality?
  • Does having access to the latest trends matter?

Eden Clay only imports tiles from Italy.  Why do we do that when there are cheaper sources for tiles from places like India and China? Hopefully the following answers this question and gives you a better understanding of “Why Italian”.

Italian porcelain tiles have long been revered for their timeless elegance and superior quality. They are a testament to Italy’s rich history and tradition of craftsmanship, which dates back to the Roman Empire. Today, these tiles are popular with homeowners and designers worldwide, who appreciate their beauty, durability, and versatility.

The Allure of Italian Porcelain Tiles

Italian porcelain tiles are renowned for their exquisite designs, often drawing inspiration from Italy’s diverse landscapes and architectural heritage. From the rustic charm of Tuscan villas to the grandeur of Roman palaces, these tiles can evoke a wide range of aesthetics. They are available in an array of colours, patterns, and finishes, allowing you to create a unique look that reflects your personal style.

Quality and Durability

Italian porcelain tiles are not just about aesthetics; they are also about quality. They are made from fine porcelain clay, which is fired at high temperatures to create a dense, hard-wearing material. This makes them resistant to scratches, stains, and moisture, making them an excellent choice for high-traffic areas and wet environments like kitchens and bathrooms.


  • A key advantage of Italian porcelain tiles is their versatility.
  • They can be used on floors, walls, countertops, and even outdoors, thanks to their low water absorption rate.
  • Moreover, they can mimic the look of natural materials like stone, wood, and marble, offering a more affordable and low-maintenance alternative.


In an era where sustainability is increasingly important, Italian porcelain tiles stand out for their eco-friendly credentials. They are made from natural materials and can be recycled at the end of their life. Many Italian manufacturers are committed to sustainable practices, such as using recycled materials and reducing energy consumption in their production processes.


Italian porcelain tiles are a perfect blend of beauty, quality, and versatility. They offer a durable and stylish solution for any space, whether you’re aiming for a modern minimalist look or a classic, traditional feel. With their rich heritage and commitment to sustainability, they are a choice you can feel good about. So, when you’re planning your next renovation project, consider the timeless elegance of Italian porcelain tiles.

Remember, a tile is not just a tile. It’s a reflection of your style, a testament to quality, and a part of your home that should last for years. Choose wisely, choose Italian porcelain tiles.
