About Us

Located in Ann Arbor, Mich., Motawi Tileworks makes handcrafted tile as art pieces and for residential and commercial installations. Owner and Artistic Director Nawal Motawi began creating historically inspired tile in her garage and selling it at the local farmers market. Demand for her work grew, and in 1992 Motawi formed The Tileworks, which came to specialize in Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts and Midcentury Modern aesthetics. In addition to its own unique designs, The Tileworks is also licensed to produce art tile based on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and Charley Harper. Motawi art tiles are now sold in more than 300 locations in the U.S. and Canada, and Motawi tile installations grace homes and public spaces worldwide.

Motawi tile is all sold per piece and is all made-to-order. It works out that our field tile starts at $165 per square foot. However, we normally advise using $185-$200 as a starting budget price for projects. This would allow for a primarily field tile installation using mostly standard size tiles, but allows for some variation in size, some amount of edge glazing and a couple of decorative tiles. Projects that use smaller or larger tiles, or more decorative tiles are more expensive.
