Stiles, a pioneer in the South African tile industry, proudly announces the launch of its inaugural in-house tile brand, aptly named Etienne Tiles in honour of its founder, the late Etienne Joubert, and launched on Etienne’s birthday, 18 September.
Established in March 2000 by George locals Etienne Joubert and his son Steve Joubert, often embarking on adventurous motorcycle journeys to capture the nation’s mountains, seas, fauna and flora through his lens.
It is this profound love for the country that inspired the design of the Etienne Tiles ranges, including the recently unveiled collections: Outeniqua, Griqua, Highveld and Silt, all of which vividly reflect the splendour of South Africa’s natural beauty.
Nature’s timeless appeal
Nature has an uncanny ability to soothe our souls and ignite our creativity. The rugged grandeur of mountain landscapes, with their majestic peaks and serene valleys, has long been a source of inspiration for artists and architects alike.
Now, with Etienne, you can bring a touch of this natural wonder into your home.

Natural hues for a serene retreat
Etienne draws upon a carefully curated colour palette inspired by the mountains. Neutral colours, such as shades of beige, grey and soft earthy tones, form the perfect canvas for your interior design. These hues not only evoke a sense of calm but also create a versatile backdrop for various decor styles.
The artistry of stone textures
One of the defining features of Stiles’ Etienne collection is its stunning stone textures. These textures meticulously replicate the natural patterns found in mountain rocks and cliffs, adding depth and character to your interior spaces.
Whether you prefer the rough-hewn appeal of slate or the smoother texture of granite, Etienne tiles can recreate the rugged beauty of mountains with remarkable precision.
