With a generation of young adults emerging already educated in the world of global warming and climate change, it is no surprise that the use of reclaimed products is on the rise.
All reclaimed brick slip products by their very nature have less impact on the environment, reclaiming brings a new lease of life to something which would otherwise be deemed redundant or waste.
A product or material that can be re-processed and reused offers far more sustainability credentials than a product that cannot.
Here at brick slips we have a number of products which we solely manufacturer from reclaimed bricks.
How are Reclaimed brick slips made?
In the UK most reclaimed bricks are sourced when industrial or pre-war buildings are demolished to make way for new projects. Instead of going to landfill or being crushed up these bricks are reborn and given a new lease of life as brick slips.
Our buyers source small batches of reclaimed bricks and once received they are sorted and prepared for cutting.
Our reclaimed range of real brick slips are cut in small batches, and often by hand. This process ensures that the brick slips are not damaged and allows us to hand select only the best slips.
When you buy from our reclaimed brick slip range, you are not just buying a tile, you are buying a piece of history.
