About Us

Braddock Tiles is a startup ceramic tile company with a social mission.  We provide job creation and work readiness training to local young adults, who we hire and train to hand-make architectural ceramic tiles.

We work with the Braddock Youth Project and other Pittsburgh-area social service providers to provide support for local youth with barriers to employment.  

Braddock Tiles is a project of the Heliotrope Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by artist Caledonia Curry, also known as Swoon, to advance the values and vision of her community-based work.
Our mission is to provide economic opportunity and leadership development by hiring and training local young adults to hand-make beautiful ceramic tiles.
