Made a Mano creates lava stone, also known as basalt, tiles with patterns that are based on ancient templates and with colour that is applied by hand. They are absolutely stunning. In London, Made a Mano can be found at the Tom Dixon showroom. They also make equally beautiful countertops and sinks.
