Motawi Tileworks

Motawi Tileworks 
Ann Arbor, MI

 

The company was founded in 1992 by Nawal Motawi, who started making tiles in her garage and selling them at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market. More than 30 craftspeople now make Motawi tiles which are sold in over 300 stores across the country. Motawi Tileworks utilizes the lean management system of production pioneered by Toyota and strives to cultivate a workplace that fosters positivity, encourages constant improvement, and generates tiles of the highest quality.

Rather than focus on what is trendy, popular, or cliché, Motawi Tileworks creates designs- whether original patterns or those based on more standard motifs- that are unique, beautiful, and true to its distinct style and spirit.
