Letting go

We regularly receive requests for reproducing an old tile.

As usual, we received a request over the phone. The tile in question is then sent to us and we can start finding out how this tile was made and how we can best reproduce it now.

It becomes a little part of you, as it were. As a restorer, you work on it very intensively and you do lots of testing to get the best end result. We would much prefer to mount the tile in its final place, to see the end result.

It is difficult to let go of your pride and joy and just send it to the customer in a box.
