Handcrafted, Unique and Timeless

The old red brick has a long history, beginning with handmade convict bricks, all the way to primitive extruded wirecut bricks and in the 21st century it is still one the most common building materials. Elephant Brick Co. offers a full range of "old red bricks", ranging from the most traditional sandstocks, smoother waterstruck varieties to primitive wirecuts. We offer these "old red bricks" in both a full sized brick and as a brick tile, all available in whatever quantity you need for your job.
