"No legacy is so rich as honesty"

With over 120 years of experience in unglazed porcelain stoneware tilemaking, the Winckelmans family is dedicated to producing exceptional quality tile products with timeless aesthetics. As a 5th generation family business based near Lille, France, they pride themselves on both tradition and innovation in design and production technology.

As the exclusive stocking distributor for Winckelmans in North America since 2011, the Subway Mosaics collection from Heritage Tile has produced one-of-a-kind porcelain mosaics for a wide range of clients and applications.  From our extensive inventory of 7 classic tesserae shapes in 24 colors, this collaborative process progresses from concept to assembly to the installation of a uniquely personal masterpiece in a matter of weeks.

The Viva Tile collection is the newest member of our Winckelmans portfolio, offering larger formats in a wide range of geometric shapes. Produced in the same 24 color palette of unglazed porcelain stoneware, Viva Tile extends our offerings for historic authenticity, personal creativity, and limitless possibilities.

Since 2006 it has been our mission to promote the craft of tilemaking and to honor the craftspeople who provide us with this family of architectural ceramic products that are exceptionally functional, extremely durable, and perpetually pleasing.

We speak for all Heritage Tile clients, past and future, in our expression of gratitude to the extended Winckelmans family for all that they do.
