Inspiration sometimes comes from the strangest places! It’s not often when working with tile that we get to be exhilarated by a feel good story. I was really moved to see that the tile we were using on a recent tile shower install in Johns Creek, GA was put together by some people who are being integrated into the work force by a group of non-profit organizations. These people have intellectual difficulties but are still finding fulfillment and purpose making things with their hands. This is another example of an incredibly touching exercise in humanity happening in the tile world.
The company is called Eco Ceramica and it is based in Spain. I would like to promote a great company doing excellent things in the world and being the change they wish to see.
I thought it would be neat if one of the special needs workers living across the world sees a video of the tile they made being installed in the U.S.A I bet it would fire them up and it would also make my year! This would be a great example of things coming ‘full circle’!
