Welcome to Strip Tiles, home of the Antique Mirror Subway Tile!
Strip Tiles were created by Leslie Pabst, a little bit of luck and a dose of her innovative spirit. Owning and operating a Glass and Mirror Company, she found glass and mirror to be the perfect medium to unleash her inner creative. Antique Mirror was soon her favorite. She quickly tired of the monotony in machine made antique mirror. It was only handmade Antique Mirror that would make her light up. She was fascinated by each perfectly, imperfect piece.
She started to design and create with her Antique Mirror. It was her first design that would be the beginning of something big...The creation of Strip Tiles, the first Antique Mirror Subway Tile. It was a kitchen backsplash, for her very own sister. After the very tedious design process was complete, and the small mirrors were cut and ready to go, they ran into a setback, The installation was planned to be installed by a team of Leslie's most skilled glaziers. As luck would have it in the end, the team was delayed. The impatient, overly confident sisters, decided they could install the subway tile backsplash themselves. With no installation experience, they were winning it. Winging it at midnight on a Saturday Night. The rather...unconventional installation turned out to be a brilliant success! Using only mirror tape and mirror adhesive, Leslie realized this unique tile could be installed by anyone. She decided to share the entertaining DIY installation story on her blog the very next day.
Soon something magical happened. Emails, phone calls and comments started coming iin. People wanted these Antique Mirror Subway Tiles! Folks were pinning away, and soon the Antique Mirror Subway Tile was Pinterest Famous! Orders started coming in from all over the country. And that our friends is how Strip Tile was born!
We have come a long way hat first installation. As the demand grew, the need for a constant stock of antique mirror became necessary. Storage was a small issue. This was easily solved, we happened to have a large concrete wall that remained empty. It now houses all the large sheets of antique mirror for locals to see and pick from.
