Motawi is pleased to announce the release of one of its previously retired designs, Alhambra. Now available in a 4x4 size, this historical tile design inspired by the Alhambra Castle in Spain, will bring a mysterious beauty to any home.
The Alhambra is a majestic castle in Grenada, Spain that dates back to the 9th century when early Muslim royalty constructed it high on a hill with a view of the city and the surrounding valley. Since then, it has fallen to purposeful demolitions and also explosions. The 19th century brought the process of repairing, restoring and preserving the castle which is still standing and open for public exploration today. The name Alhambra comes from the reddish walls of the structure. In Arabic, qa'lat al-Hamra means Red Castle.
Tiles in the Alhambra are abundant, and this classic repetitive pattern in Motawi's Alhambra tile design is a nod to our founder and owner's Arabic heritage. Stunning in a clock, frame in an easel or simply hung on the wall, this unique tile design makes the perfect gift.
