6 useful tiles guide and resources to know more about Indian tile industry

Tiles of India

Among few others, the one notable tiles magazine is “Tiles of India” which just came up in July 2012 but has provided original and authentic content to its readers in each bi-monthly issue. The most important thing we noted about this magazine is they offer their past issued completely free to download. So you can gain valuable knowledge of the industry by downloading those issues.

The promoters of the magazine are highly professional industry stalwarts who have ditched the common belief that industry could never have support from world-class print / online media.

Build Avenue

Another magazine we must mention is Build Avenue. It has been around for a very long time. This publication has witnessed the industry’s ups and downs more closely. Though the publication can have a more finished look the fact that the publishing house is within Morbi itself makes it our preferred choice.

Apart from above, there are few other tiles magazines around but most of them are loaded with advertisements and biased information so we are not recommending it here. You can also refer to leading interior design magazines like Inside Outside for decoration ideas with various ceramic tiles, closets, faucets, and basins.
