In October 2012, Robert Lia acquired a company that manufactures traditional handmade Maltese patterned tiles using age-old techniques, moulds and designs. Before taking over the company, together with one of his workers, Robert was trained in the traditional manufacturing process of old patterned tiles, that has been passed from one generation to another.
The colourful cement tile has been used in tradtional Maltese houses for generations. All tiles produced by Malta Tiles are handmade, one by one, with slight variations between tiles making each one unique. New moulds and new designs are available for large orders.
