Tiling Bombay

Exploring A Patterned Past Beneath Our Feet
Hidden away in the heritage buildings, libraries, museums, home and offices of Mumbai, are floors filled with wondrous patterns made of handmade tiles. While exploring these century-old spaces and forgotten corridors, we discovered a rich trove of visual delight that we wanted to share.

We’re documenting and illustrating the gamut of colours, patterns and floors of these heritage building from South Mumbai.
