Each of our Motawi art tiles are designed and made by the artisans at Motawi Tileworks in Ann Arbor, Michigan. These hand-made, historically informed art tiles are created for distinctive installations and as art pieces.
Motawi Tileworks was founded in 1992 by Nawal Motawi, who started making tiles in her garage and selling them at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market next to the rutabaga sellers. Nawal's motto: It's fun to be good! (at what you do) Motawi art tiles are now sold in galleries across the United States.
