Description

The raw materials are excavated in Weichsel loam layers, the local loam of Aeolian origin dating from the Ice Age. This löss mainly consists of a silt-like fraction, suited ideally for the manufacturing of hand form bricks. By using specific sand types for surface covering, the desired colour is achieved.


Features and benefits:

  • Hand formed.
  • Multi-shade.
  • Red base colour with orange variations.
  • Five joint styles available.
