Established in 2013, Papersmiths offers a range of stationery and books from a collection of international designers. Papersmiths tasked Direct Tiling Group with the internal floor & wall tiling package of their new store in Shoreditch.

Together with Papersmiths, we hosted a free consultation session to grasp an understanding of the brand & what they hoped to achieve with their transformed space – enabling our team to provide suitable tile options and develop a convenient schedule of works.


Papersmith’s goal was to create a store that truly stood out. To house their new outlet, Papersmiths acquired and converted a 300 sq/ft shipping container, enabling them to achieve a unique look. We used speckled jesmonite and dusky pink encaustic tiles throughout the store creating a uniform yet bold appeal.
