Motawi Tileworks is a 20-year-old Ann Arbor-based artisan tile manufacturer and retailer that has won local and national awards for both its tile and its workplace culture. Owner and founder Nawal Motawi started out in 1992 with a dream and a booth at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market. Today, she presides over a 30-person staff in a 12,000 square foot studio that produces over $2 million in annual sales. Nawal will discuss the history of Motawi Tileworks and the design process.
This event is held in conjunction with the Downtown AADL exhibit, Motawi in the Making: The History and Science Behind The Art, on display July 25 - September 5.
