Reclaimed Thin Brick Veneer
Historically, brick has always been an easily accessible and much revered building material all around the world. From historical, religious and political structures to the privacy of our own homes, brick has always been relevant and authentic. Although brick production reached its peak in the early 20th Century, what has followed is a trend we recognize today - the use of reclaimed brick to create authentic spaces.
We scour the world to bring this recycled, beautiful material to numerous Commercial and Residential projects all across the country. As it's not easy to simply add old bricks to your home, we slice salvaged bricks into tile thickness that can be used as floor tile, or wall veneer (download the installation guide here). So whether you are doing a kitchen backsplash in your home, or adding some history to your restaurant with an accent wall, our reclaimed thin brick makes this easy.
Thin Brick Veneer Colors
Our core product in this category is New England Mill Blend, consisting of bricks manufactured between 1890 and 1920 in the Northeast and reclaimed from old textile mills, but we also offer our Antique Grey blend, reclaimed from overseas.
New England Mill Blend
Salvaged from old factories, mills, and schools around New England, this blend is an ideal accent material. The color is made up of the deep reds and terracotta oranges found in the Northeast — however, we mix in white tones and blackened “soot stained” pieces as a result of fire damage and natural weathering.
Dimensions: 2 3/8″ x 7 1/2″ – 8 1/4″ x 1/2″

Antique Grey blend
Our Antique Grey thin brick is a great blend if you are looking for a darker grey blend. As grey clay is most readily found in the southwest region of China along the banks of the Yangtze River, Stone Farm has partnered with reclamation teams in that area to bring this new product to America. Not recommended for floor applications.
Dimensions: 2 3/8″ x 8″ – 9 ” x 1/2″

Salvaging old Brick for veneer
Thin Brick Veneer is a versatile interior design option for many varied spaces, mixing seamlessly with both old and new architecture. This material is produced by slicing 1/2" pieces off of either the face (wall veneer) or top (flooring tiles) of the reclaimed, full brick. We also have the capability of fabricating outside corner pieces and thin tile strips.

Swatches of our thin brick veneer are one thing, but this timeless material really comes to life when installed. Light and mortar choices have a huge effect on how this "perfectly imperfect" brick brings life to a space. From breweries to offices, kitchens to foyers, man caves to bathrooms... we probably have a picture!

Thin Brick Floor Tile
We also cut our New England Mill Blend into easily installed Reclaimed Brick Floor Tiles, offering you a unique look to any floor.
Our New England Mill Blend Floor Tile is cut from the same bricks as our New England Mill Blend wall veneer. The difference is that we cut the top of the brick (rather than the face). As this is where the mortar lay, you can get more 'whites/greys'. The larger surface area is more consistent with traditional brick floors.
Dimensions: 3 1/2" x 7 3/4"-8 1/2" x 1/2"

How To Obtain a White Wash Look
The picture on the right was taken inside of a home in Las Vegas. They decided to use our New England Mill blend reclaimed thin brick veneer for an accent wall in their living room. In order to obtain that white look the mason did a white wash scrape over the brick veneer.
White Wash Recipe
