Established in 2009 by Petro van Zyl, De Kleipot creates a wide variety of high quality, hand-crafted, hand-painted tiles.

Our tile collections feature diverse colour palettes, styles, shapes and sizes, with ranges to suit different décor moods and trends, from vintage to modern.

We offer tiles made specifically for floors, wall areas large and small, kitchens and bathrooms, outdoor areas and gardens, and other surfaces that need a redesign or pick-me-up. They are also ideal for mosaic and decorative projects.

De Kleipot studio is situated on the Aan de Doorns farm in the beautiful winemaking region of Worcester in the Western Cape, South Africa. Our business supports the local community – we proudly employ a talented team of local craftswomen who produce and paint our tiles with love and care.

Our tile designs have evolved over the years, resulting in a wonderful variety of tile ranges on offer. These include:
Art Nouveau • Black and White • Floor Tiles  • HeartsOutdoor • Raku • Wall Tiles in different shapes and glazes • Plain, single-coloured tiles for use in mosaic inserts or to build custom designs.
Our tiles are produced in 4 sizes that are compatible for use with standard commercial and mosaic tiles. This enables you to easily create your own tile designs and layouts in your living and working spaces. We often create custom tiles for clients. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss this option.
