The history of tiles

The source of tile production is the art of pottery, which is one of the most ancient human arts. It dates back to BC. Continued progress in the pottery industry has led to changes in production methods, including the change of furnaces, the invention of the potter's wheel, and the quality of pottery materials such as painting and glazing. And made pottery and tiles possible dates back to about five thousand years ago. The earliest forms of tiles date back to prehistoric times, when the use of clay as a building material was developed in several early civilizations. Early modern tiles were roughly shaped and did not have the strength of today's tiles. Tile materials were extracted from riverbeds, formed into building blocks, and dried in the sun. Early tiles were raw, but even 6,000 years ago, people used them to decorate tiles using painting and delicate carvings.
