Stitch embodies the essence of familiar fabric patterns and marries these with modern porcelain tile production. Taking elements from architecture, intricate stone carving and a love of brutal concrete forms, Stitch uses these entirely or in part as motifs or as influence in the motif arrangements. The pattern choice in this range is extremely flexible ranging from the pared down grid of Squat to the Art Deco charm of Duomo and Façade.

Each of the twenty patterns creates its own rhythm constructed from the family of twelve shapes. Bold geometric patterns describe their design roots from the high-rises and housing of the seventies. In line rhythms with no variations, straight to the point and beautifully linear.

The introduction of the angled pieces creates a sense of perspective to the patterns. These are the shapes that inspired the name of the series because of their fabric like looks. Mission is a Hungarian stitch with Wave, Cricket and Off Set giving a chunky knit vibe.

Quarter round curves bring a softer geometry into the mix creating gentle rolling repeats, transporting the eye on an undulating journey. These pieces bring a wonderful contrast against the brutal angles and give Stitch its Art Deco edge.

Colourways are created from a carefully chosen and limited palette of twelve through body porcelain colours. Colour plays an important part in this series being able to influence the perception of pattern, altering the way the eye travels and even the perspective effects. Each pattern works very easily in a plain colour, offering a subtlety that can be picked up with a coloured grout.

The grout lines created by Stitch are as important as the shapes they surround. Introducing colour into the space between the tile pieces is essential to the success and completeness of each pattern. A complimentary colour will add a punch to the finished surface where a harmonious tone will soften and blend. Where plain tiles are chosen, the grout join becomes the pattern so be as bold and bright as you dare.
