Founded in 1973, Tileshop has become a California leading tile importer in the ceramic tile industry for over 40 years. Many of our tile lines manufactured abroad are conceived, designed and carried exclusively by us. We have established a direct working relationship with manufacturers which allows us to influence the design of new products in an ongoing effort to supply lines of tiles that reflect the current tile trends and satisfy the demands of architects and designers.

We selectively import from factories that manufacture under the guidelines for environmental certification and compliance. Tileshop is proud to promote these factories that participate in the Eco-Label, Emas Green Building Italian Council programs. Some products are able to earn LEED MR credits 4.1 and 4.2.

At Tileshop we are committed to our environmental responsibility and have integrated the green philosophy into our work environment. A partial list of our program involvement includes:
• our main buildings in Berkeley have solar panels and generate more electricity than they consume.
• recycling cardboard, paper, plastic materials and wooden pallets
• recycling aluminum cans and glass
• a composting program with the city of Berkeley


Tileshop is an active participant in the community through its tile donation to various projects and organizations.

Each of our three locations has separate outside sales staff that services the design and architectural community, providing tile not only for residential and small commercial jobs, but for very large, commercial projects as well. All of our locations have showrooms with vignettes where we are able to properly display the material, as well as a warehouse that stocks over 90% of what is displayed. We take great pride in our quality and outstanding service.
