Ceramic production in Turkey has a long history and rich tradition, with the first ceramics being created in Anatolia over 8000 years ago. Today, Turkish ceramic producers are proud to continue this tradition of innovation with a creative approach and a broad range of high quality and durable products for both the professional and consumer markets. Representing over 33 individual companies, Turkish Ceramics Promotion Group aims to raise awareness of Turkish ceramics abroad and communicate the quality of Turkish ceramic tiles and sanitary ware.
