OLD RED BRICKS

Handcrafted, Unique and Timeless

Like the look of the classic old red brick or brick tile. The old red brick has a long history starting with handmade convict bricks all the way to primitive extruded wirecut bricks. We offer 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, as a brick tile and in whatever quantity you need for your job.

HERITAGE SOFT RED

Our most traditional red sandstock, or more accurately sandstruck  brick. Subtle soft orange to red tonal changes and elephant skin creasing. Its similarity to bricks used in 17th century England and 19th century Australia is due to the traditional method we use to manufacture these bricks and is a testament to the craftsmanship of our brick makers.

RECLAMATION SOFT RED

A reclamation version of our soft red brick. Subtle soft orange to red tonal changes and elephant skin creasing. This brick undergoes a special process to give the appearance of a reclaimed brick.

WEATHERED RECLAMATION SOFT RED

The classic “old red brick” with subtle red, orange and brown tonal changes, elephant skin creasing with lime scumming and sooted rustic patina. This brick can be blended with our Reclamation Soft Red to create custom colour tones.

MIDNIGHT RED
