Historical Restorations

preserving tradition, restoring a piece of history

Historical restoration began internally with craftsmen working to repair the factory’s original tile motifs, which consisted of about 150 plates ranging from simple linear patterns to those with more complex and abstract details.

Since the initial product restoration, Pabrik Tegel Kunci has helped rebuild many significant buildings to their original states, including Kraton, Bale Hinggil, Kepatihan, and BTPN Bandung. Many of these tiles were painstakingly customized to match their originals.

Recently the Bank of Indonesia Museum attempted to find the Dutch company that produced their first tiles in 1828, but upon discovering it had already closed they enlisted our custom services to exactly replicate the building’s earliest tiles.
