The team at Motawi Tileworks is passionate about making great tile while spreading their positivity. Their company was founded in 1992 by Nawal Motawi, who started making tiles in her garage and selling them at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market next to the rutabaga sellers. More than 30 ceramicists now make tiles in a 12,900 square foot studio. They utilize Toyota Style Production thinking and methodology; and strive to cultivate positivity, constant improvement, and high quality tile. Motawi Tileworks continues to be a woman-owned business with products made by hand in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
