Raven is the London based, Northern European Distributor for the Japanese Master Ceramists, INAX. INAX has fashioned a series of tiles founded on culture and tradition cultivated by the Japanese populace. Such tradition, culture, and technique passed down through the Japanese DNA have been carefully preserved, with the foremost affection and appreciation for nature. Japanese sensitivities to beauty include the spirit of omotenashi (hospitality), a timeless approach to beauty that is distinctively Japanese. Inspirations from Japanese culture, tradition, and seasonal hues render tiles instilled with sensitivity and refinement by the Japanese people INAX Founder, Hatsunojo Ina, were highly regarded for the skills in Yakimono (earthenware) and were engaged by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1919 to produce 2.5 million tiles for his new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. Unfortunately, this stunning piece of architecture was dismantled in 1967 and a portion of the decorative tiles have been preserved in INAX Museums. INAX ceramics contain a minimum of 40% recycled material and INAX complies with ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems.
