Unique Jewish gift designs
Our designs are inspired by local ancient mosaic floors, psalms and blessings from the Torah, and the Gates and street names of Jerusalem.

These Jewish gift tiles can be used as wall hangings, or accents installed in a kitchen wall, fireplace, bathroom, table top, counter top, and anywhere else where you may need tiles with vivid colors and unique designs. As gifts, they are also available with a wood frame.
