Imperfect Tiles (2 available)
Imperfect tiles are slightly below the high standards of our perfect tiles. These tiles are a great
way to add to your collection and saves £5 per tile against the price of perfect tiles.
An imperfect tile will have a small defect of some kind, such as a crack or surface blemish.
A crack will not be easy to spot from the front but is likely to be more obvious from the back.
You are welcome to contact us before purchasing an imperfect tile to ask about the defects.
