Ecohistorical Homes Kitchen Backsplash / Fireclay Tile Debris Series

1902 Colonial Revival in San Francisco. Fireclay’s Debris Tile was part of a completely “green” redesign, from reclaimed flooring to zero-VOC foam and recycled denim insulation to LED lighting and motion sensor dimmers and fans to the solar panels up on the roof and the ultra-efficient heat pump heating/cooling and hot water systems.

The Debris Series features over 112 glaze colors and contains over 60% recycled materials, creating one of the most beautiful, sustainable ceramic products on the market. Our colors are unique and stunning, and the tile is truly sustainable - Made in the USA using locally sourced post-consumer and pre-consumer waste materials which we up-cycle into the highest quality ceramic tile. The result is a terra cotta colored stone body with a warm red-brown hue that is truly beautiful, unique, and sustainable. The Debris Series qualifies for LEED points and will enhance any installation.

These locally sourced recycled materials include; recycled waste glass made up of bag-house dust collected from Strategic Materials in San Leandro, recycled granite dust from Granite Rock, recycled spent abrasives leftover from cleaning the Hetch Hetchy water pipes that transport water to the City of San Francisco from Yosemite Valley, and now recycled porcelain from San Francisco and San Jose. All products are handmade within Fireclay's day-lit, open air factory where the company reuses everything including clays, glazes and waste water.

We don't make the countertops. The tile is from our Debris Series, recycled tile line. Our friend Josh at Eco Historical Homes- http://ecohistorical.wordpress.com -is responsible for this beautiful kitchen design. The countertops are likely by either Richlite or Paperstone, both from Washington state. These two companies manufacture recycled paper countertops that can look reminiscent to soapstone. If your familiar with Epicurian cutting boards... they are made from Richlite.

Hello genevievefotis. So glad you love the tile! We have certainly worked with international clients before, it is difficult to say what the shipping would be without knowing some specifics about your project. I suggest that you give one of our ceramists a call at 408.275.1182 or email info@fireclaytile.com. We're happy to chat with you to see if Fireclay Tile will work for your project.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Fireclay Tile has been an industry leader in sustainable tile since 1988, when the company changed to lead-free glazes. Its Debris series combines 60 percent recycled content from both postindustrial and postconsumer waste. The tiles are handmade and molded, which results in a lovely natural color variation.Cost: Starting at $24 per square foot
5. Backsplashes. Today's recycled tile proves that ecofriendly materials don't have to skimp on style. Here are some options for beautiful backsplash tile that's kind to your kitchen and the earth, too. Get the guide: Ecofriendly Kitchen: Recycled Tile for Backsplashes
The color of task lighting is important. "If you want the light source to look like incandescent at full blast, then select 2,700 Kelvin," advises Whitehead. "If you like the color of dimmed incandescent, which is my preference, look for a light source that is 2,400 Kelvin. These color temperatures will blend well with the incandescent sources in adjoining rooms.” More about understanding light color
