Portuguese tiles are a legacy with centuries of history and they’ve gained a privileged place in architecture throughout the years – and, most recently, in design. Seen as a cultural landmark, Portuguese tiles honor the country’s history and, to be a part of it, Boca do Lobo designed the Heritage line. With each tile hand painted, a small image in the bigger picture that tells a story, the goal is to keep them alive, sparking a flare in the spectator.
Heritage is an elegant line to compliment the decoration of any interior setting. A highly coveted ensemble of hand painted tiles like those of an expertly curate art collection bring together master artisans and craftsmen for Boca do Lobo’s Heritage.
