About Craven Dunnill

Founded in 1872, Craven Dunnill is renowned for the supply and manufacture of fine ceramic tiles. Stocking one of the widest product selections from the leading manufacturers around the World, our portfolio is synonymous with luxury and style.

We have spent almost 150 years perfecting our levels of service, and we pride ourselves on it. We strive to exceed our customer’s expectations.

Our History

Craven Dunnill has a long and esteemed history in ceramic tiles. It started manufacturing wall and floor tiles in 1872, and since it’s formation, the company has continually invested in new approaches to production by embracing new technology. This was fundamental in the decision to develop its own purpose-built tile factory at Jackfield in Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire, UK back in 1872. At the time, Jackfield was the global centre of the tile industry, and now forms part of the World Heritage Site at the heart of Britain’s Industrial Revolution.

From its manufacturing roots, the Craven Dunnill Group has evolved and grown over the years, now with operating businesses in the retail and distribution of fine ceramic tiles, the supply of tiles for the commercial project sector, and specialist tile production. Among its premises, Craven Dunnill still operates the oldest surviving purpose-built tile factory in the World.

Don’t just take our word for it! See some feedback direct from our customers:

"We've been very happy with the quality of tiles and love our home."

Retail Customer, Ludlow

Everyone we have dealt with have been so helpful & friendly. The young lady who came to help us was excellent showing us what we needed & left us to it until we returned with questions. She went above and beyond normal expectations.

Retail Customer

Very professional service. Have used CD many times - will be back!

Retail Customer

May we complement the staff in the showroom who were helpful, approachable and knowledgeable. The important point was to refer when queries were outside their expertise. That’s so much better than bluffing through and potentially leading to us making a bad judgement call. It would be nice if all companies shared those ethics!
