Ex-EU/International Shipping: *International courier services and rates are back on emergency footing.

We carry a wide selection of quality mosaic tiles and supplies. If you do not see what you are looking for please email us a picture to store@thecraftkit.com and we will try to identify it for you.

The pictures on this website are provided to assist in making color choices, we take the pictures using a Canon camera and they are edited on a Macbook Pro but they are not guaranteed to be an exact image. They are chosen to best represent the colour and finish, however the appearance of the actual product may vary due to the following:

  • the search engine, color settings or type of device used to view the website
  • limitations of photography
  • the limitations of viewing photos at website resolutions
  • the limitations and/or variations intrinsic to viewing photos on monitors or screens
  • dye lot variation. Each batch of a color may potentially vary. Please buy all that you need at one time to complete a project as we cannot color match from batch to batch. We strongly urge you to buy a sample before purchasing large quantities. We are not responsible to batch or colour differences as these are intrinsic to tile production

We design and manufacture a range of products that are exclusive to us. Additionally, we buy from several renowned suppliers in the mosaic world. We have wholesale pricing for approved mosaic related business, architects, interior designers and artists. We sell sample sizes of products and sample cards with actual tiles to help in colour selection. Please note that each batch of tile produced may have colour differences.
