Since 1992, the artisans at Motawi Tileworks have hand crafted art tile in their Ann Arbor, Michigan studio. These distinctive tiles are known for their rich glazes and uniquely American designs, inspired by nature, art and architecture.
Nawal Motawi, founder of Motawi Tileworks, was first exposed to the tile of the Arts & Crafts Movement at Pewabic Pottery. In 1992 she set out on her own, starting what soon became the Motawi Tileworks. Her brother, Karim, joined her as a business partner after graduating from college later that year.
