Made-to-order mosaics designed by you.


Mosaics have been used around the world for thousands of years in artistic and cultural installations. From 4th century Greece to the 20th century New York subway, mosaics are a visual feast for the eyes. In the US, mosaics that adorned the New York City subway system created a novel form of practical art. Since then, craftsmen working with porcelain mosaic tiles are filling the demand for creative patterns and designs in homes and public buildings.

Today, Subway Mosaics provides tiles that honor our history and revitalize our past. Every detailed element of these vintage tiled spaces, particularly from the 1920’s and 30’s, can now be reproduced affordably and authentically with materials from the Subway Mosaics collection. With unlimited glazes, tile patterns, and design options that work with the customer’s needs, achieving a stunning final product is an enjoyable process.

Heritage Tile proudly produces and assembles Subway Mosaics made-to-order designs in the USA. More than just the tiles, we provide fields and trim, marble mouldings, borders, and more to ensure your mosaic project is complete. Our goal is to help maintain the vintage character in your home or public space, ensuring timeless quality for years to come.

It’s All in the Historic Details

Subway Mosaics tile work comes in an expansive variety of palettes and patterns straight out of the 1920s and 30s, keeping true to your historically renovated home or public space.
