Tile Restoration Center is a small tile company in Seattle, Washington, dedicated to producing historically accurate reproductions of American Arts & Crafts tile makers such as Ernest Batchelder and Claycraft.

Ernest Allan Batchelder was a leading designer of the American Arts & Crafts movement, already well known when he founded his own tile company in Pasadena, California in 1909. After studying at the School of Arts and Crafts in Birmingham, England, he taught at the Harvard Summer School of Design, organized the Handicraft Guild in Minneapolis, where he taught summer courses, and directed the department of arts and crafts at Throop Polytechnic Institute in Pasadena, California.

You might have a Batchelder installation in your house and not even know it.
