Wienerberger has announced the launch of two new handcreased bricks in response to market demand for softmud bricks and blends of different colours.

Manufactured at Wienerberger’s Warnham factory in the South East of England, the plain, warm Olde Southwater red brick is complemented by the Olde Sussex Blend, which features a combination of warm red and soft orange tones.

Olde Sussex Blend bricks

The Olde Southwater and Olde Sussex Blend bricks are expected to be popular across the South of England and beyond.

The Olde Southwater and Olde Sussex Blend bricks feature a handcreased texture that produces a similar aesthetic to that of handmade bricks, without the added cost.

Commenting on the new product launch, Lee Pauls, Category Product Manager for Wall products at Wienerberger, said:

“We are very pleased to be adding these new handcreased style products to our range as they really enhance our offering in this area.  

We are seeing a growing demand for this type of product and the blending of different brick colours is currently very much on trend and provides us with some great opportunities. Product development is one of our key priorities and we are looking forward to developing this offering even further throughout 2017.”
