Shou Sugi Ban inspired elegance: The Ember Collection has arrived.
Inspired by the ancient Japanese technique of burnt wood siding, we worked tirelessly to create our dynamic range of Ember tiles. Instead of charring the underlying material used in our tiles, we chose recreate this look using a combination of rough textured “dead-fall” timber with a series of vegetable dye treatments. In doing so we created a product that was both commercially consistent and free of the odor most typically associated with charred wood. Finished with our ceramic coating and available in sophisticated designs, our Ember tiles come out of the box ready for your residential or commercial project.

Reclaimed Barnwood is typically pine wood that has been used on barns, buildings, and other structures. Exposed to sun, wind, rain and snow for decades, the wood will develop its own unique color and texture. When these structures have met or exceeded their usable lifespan, many companies like ours see the value in not only reclaiming the wood and re-using it for other purposes, but also see the beauty in what nature has created from simple milled pine wood and want to share that beauty with the world.
Our Ember Series uses this reclaimed wood and a non VOC organic vegetable die to mimic the Japanese artform of Shou Sugi Bahn, a technique that preserves wood by charring it with fire. Available in several designer patterns, the Ember series is a great mix of the texture of reclaimed wood, the bold color of the series, and the clean and angular nature of the patterns, making this series highly coveted by forward thinking architects and designers looking to take risks with color, shape, and texture.
At Everitt & Schilling we take a lot of pride in bringing this unique product from our factory in Fort Collins, CO to your doorstep. We constantly are searching and vetting reclaimed barnwood sources to deliver the best raw materials to make our tile with. We are the only wood tile manufacturer using our patent pending backer system which allows for hassle free installations using adhesive or thinset instead of mechanical fastening, and we only finish our Barnwood Series products with non VOC ceramic coatings to ensure the product stays looking great for years to come.

A Modern Twist on an Ancient Technique
For centuries Japanese craftsman have been practicing a technique where wood, most often cedar, is charred to improve the durability for use as siding, fencing, and decking, while also creating an artistic and unique finish. We love this look and were able to find a way to mimic the charring effect by using our reclaimed barnwood and a no VOC organic vegetable die to create a similar color and texture pattern and use it to create our beautiful design minded mosaic wood wall tiles.
Design Forward Patterns & Color
The patterns of the Ember series were specifically created to accentuate the bold color and clean aesthetic of this series. From the long and linear look of the 2″x18″ strips of the Hayden pattern, to the eye catching chevron of the Gallatin pattern, the color and pattern of the Ember series are at home on forward thinking design inspired projects.
