400 years ago, the Ludovisi family of Rome, Italy began producing expertly crafted clay roof tiles. By the late 1800s, their descendant, Carl Ludowici, used this unique form of old-world craftsmanship in a roof tile factory of his own based in Chicago, Illinois. The popularity of his products led to the expansion of several factories until Ludowici was eventually consolidated into a single facility in New Lexington, Ohio.
Today, Ludowici tiles are still made in New Lexington, Ohio, and are revered worldwide for their distinctive look and sustainable, long-lasting beauty. With over 130 years of experience, Ludowici offers a broad range of color and texture options, allowing for endless inspiration.
