These textiles open up an endless range of possibilities for dry-assembly cladding systems in architecture. They can “dress” façades, roofs, squares… Exploring new associations with textile architecture. Constructions in which this new ceramic textile has been used, such as drainable pavements, garden roofs, ceilings and hanging filter façades, demonstrate the remarkable architectural opportunities that ceramic materials show when they are conceived in industrialized systems.


The ceramic textile is an innovative industrialized system based on an interwoven steel wire mesh which encloses a reticulum of pieces of baked clay arranged in tabular form. Its main advantage is that it provides us with a centuries-old material in a new format that it upgrades traditional piece to piece installation.


From the past to the future Flexbrick is a new way to use a millennial material. The new revolution of ceramic surfaces that upgrades traditional piece to piece installation


Its great flexibility means that, when it is stored and transported, it can be folded into pallets taking up less space and making easier to move it. After, its installation in long strips is easy, fast and economical.


Architects and designers can play with multiple configurations of patterns that can get to customize.


The ceramic tiles in the meshes, like the notes in a stave, can play with the arrangement of gaps and blanks more freely, achieving greater variety than in the case of traditional lattice built by bricklayers.


Personalized Design Flexbrick can be used to create patterns by combining multiple fabric configurations, colors and materials. It’s easy and cheap to personalized it. .


They display a great deal of variation: the system allows numerous configurations such as staggered joints, openwork or reticulum… and a big range of color shades, glazed surfaces or other materials.
