Yellow clay brick slips top of the trend. Ok, ok… We do not recommend using brick slips for roadways or pavements. The tag should have read “Follow the yellow brick slip wall” my bad!
Aside from a fantasy of dazzling the pavements of one of Hollywood’s most famous film sets, yellow brick slips have been consistently growing in trend and offer an Oscar winning look to any wall surface.
Traditionally a London look, yellow bricks are a staple of the south, a calling card for buildings that have risen from the yellow clays of the Thames. London is a wash with yellow bricks and yellow styled masonry work.
The demand for brick slips that exhibit this unique clay makeup has been steadily growing and gaining momentum in design circles for over 10 years.
Here at brickslips.co.uk we produce three of the most popular London brick styled brick slips on the market.
Through experience, investment and investigation we have produced and developed three of the most iconic yellow brick slips available within our industry.
London Weathered Yellow Brick Slips
The London weathered yellow are by far the most popular of our yellow brick slip range. These slips owe their popularity to the mixture of colourings and weathered features which are only found in a true London yellow brick that has been through the test of time.
We are especially proud of the Ash accents that a good proportion of the bricks exhibit. These ash tones painstakingly created during the brick manufacture to simulate the methods of early London brick manufacture.
London Reclaimed Yellow Brick Slips
The London Reclaimed yellow bricks are our most authentic play on the London yellow brick. During the process of manufacturing London Stock Bricks, the clay that is taken from the Thames basin and when fired exhibits yellow and pink tones dependant on the deposit location.
A large portion of London is built with this specific clay, the detail in the manufacture has meant that this terrific recreation provides a truly authentic brick slip.
The Mayfair Brick Slips
The Mayfair brick slips are a modern take on the London yellow brick. These bricks offer a fantastic yellow color spectrum and due to the more uniform shape are a great alternative to our other yellow brick slips.
Less tumbled and less weathered than the London weathered yellow and the London reclaimed yellow, the Mayfair has been triumphant in coving the bases which our other yellow products don’t.
The colourings are more vivid and the texture is light, which gives this London yellow coloured brick a unique modern edge.
The great thing about our yellow brick slip range is in the variance exhibited by all of the products.
The flexibility of our brick slips has meant that designers are able to incorporate ever more elaborate and intricate designs using the colourings of a building material that has been written through the history of one of the worlds most infamous cities.
You can be drinking wine in Manchester, sipping tea in Harrogate or partying somewhere over the rainbow.
With the aid of our yellow brick slips designers can still offer up a splash of London within their design thanks to our great range of yellow brick slips.
