Harlinger aardewerk & tegels since 1598
The Harlinger Pottery and Tiles Factory is an authentic family business and is the last company in the Netherlands to produce pottery and tiles in an original manner. This means that the products are made entirely by hand using the tin glazing technique. Internationally, this technique is called majolica, faience or Delftware. In Harlingen, pottery and tiles have been made using the tin glazing technique since 1598. So you can always come to us for authentic artisan tiles or pottery.
We manufacture the most diverse ceramic products from classical to design, specially for you. We restore, conserve, complete or renew tiles, tableaux and construction ceramics from all architectural styles.
Design & Craft
With our knowledge of the old craft and years of experience, we deliver high quality products. We like to work with designers and architects to apply the old techniques in modern projects. Each room becomes special with our traditional tiles or floor tiles. To see what has already been done, please refer to the projects page.
The most beautiful artisanal white tiles
A unique project requires unique hand-shaped tiles. We supply hand-formed Friesian whites with a beautifully nuanced play of colours. We do not only mould the tiles by hand but we also glaze by hand.
The original recipe for clay, glaze and paint from the 16th century in combination with a large historical archive of sponges and designs, as well as carefully trained craftsmen in-house, means we are able to provide entirely hand-crafted ceramic creations.
We are an expert partner in damage-free removal, preservation and original replacement of ceramic building material.
