Why Choose Fireclay?

Fireclay is a strong and durable material, used to handcraft sinks for hundreds of years. Sometimes confused with porcelain or ceramic, genuine fireclay is a reinforced clay, making it much stronger and ideal for everyday use. When combined with modern glazing technology, these sinks have a non-porous and stain-resistant surface with antibacterial qualities, enabling easy cleaning and maintenance.

Unlike other ceramics, fireclay is strong enough to withstand sudden temperature changes and ordinary knocks and bumps. Their resistance to heat, scratches, impact and cracks means fireclay sinks are suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and outdoor kitchens.

The popularity of fireclay butler sinks is largely due to their combination of practicality and classic style. Each 1901 sink is uniquely handcrafted, defined by unique ripples and dimples that indicate its quality and add warmth and personality to your home.
