Walker Zanger Wows with Watercolors

Walker Zanger has developed an esteemed reputation for creating some of the world’s most intricate and mesmerizing tile patterns for more than 60 years. Highlighting the recent debut of the Duquesa Fatima pattern, which blends stylistic touches from 16th century Italian textiles, Portuguese ceramic tiles and Moorish mosaics, Merlot secured an editorial feature in the September issue of Consumer Reports that reasserts the timelessness of the company’s internationally-inspired artisanship.

Everything artisanal is currently on trend, from coffee shops and restaurants to hand-crafted products for every aspect of the home, and this coverage further solidifies Walker Zanger’s identity as an industry leader and trailblazer within the stone and tile industry.

Consumer Reports rigorously tests and reviews a myriad of products to provide a clear picture of quality, value and performance. The high marks earned by Duquesa in the September issue are an exciting affirmation of Walker Zanger’s sophisticated aesthetic and trendsetting position within the product design category.

This feature garnered 12,000,000 impressions.
